Briefly.co.za reported on the ANC’s promise to serve South Africa and deal with corrupt officials. We conducted a survey and South Africans reacted with some interesting feedback.
Briefly.co.za shared the ANC’s promise to deal with corrupt officials as they aim to serve the people.
In addition, we ran a poll to gauge the sentiment of the man on the street.
The post included the following caption: “ANC promises to serve SA: End of the road for corrupt officials. Do you have faith in this promise? Why?”
At the time of publishing, a meagre 350 people believed the ANC’s pledge to root out corruption compared to 1 000 who declared that they have no faith in the promise.
Nearly 200 people elaborated by adding comments to the post as well.
Motho Wa Batho said, “The only way ANC could get an inch of a chance is if Zuma & all his camp is in yellow overalls and Nkandla is auctioned to recover wasted tax payer's hard earned money.”
Mzwandile Maila added, “No faith in this promise. They are still having a list of people that are implicated in Bosasa, some in Sassa, Some in Home Affairs scandal, and so on and on. I personally dont have faith in the ruling party.”
Nyambeni Mutaheli said, “If ANC still have old age granny and grandpa who think of their pocket not work for citizen I don't think the road of corruption will end!”
There were some who defended the ruling party and noted the challenge that lies ahead.
Rudolph Vester said, “This country is so broken there is no easy fix I would not want to be the new government, it’s almost impossible to fix this country.”
However, the vast majority of South Africans were sceptical and insist that corrupt officials should be arrested first.
Teniel Kuperus said, “I will trust ANC when people get fired and arrested for fraud and corruption.”
Bibi Mahomed added, “Not one corrupt person behind bars if this happen then we will believe in this promise.”
Colin Lodewyk said, “If it was a once off maybe or one or two individuals but the cancer has spread too far.”
