- A short clip of a nurse airing her thoughts about corruption in the ANC has gone viral and she is not shy to say what she means
- In the clip, the agitated nurse can be heard saying that the apartheid government oppressed black people but it also took care of their people, while the current government is failing its own people
- The clip received thousands of reactions from viewers who agreed with her sentiments
Corruption in the South African government is at an all-time high. Billions have been looted from an emergency fund that was supposed to help combat the struggles brought along by the Covid-19 pandemic.
South Africans who are mostly up in arms with the president's failure to pinpoint and bring to justice the looters have taken to airing out their opinions about the big mess SA politicians are getting SA into.
The latest person to do so is an unidentified nurse. In a clip posted by @kulanicool, the young nurse can be heard sharing her thoughts on all the corruption and failures of the current SA government.
"Apartheid government was oppressive but it took care of its people. Our black government keeps failing us," she says.
She also goes on to ask where she can report unjust government officials.
"I want to know where I can report to. I can't go and report the government to the government," she is heard saying.
Her complaints focused a lot on the treatment essential service workers such as herself were getting from the government. This after a plethora of complaints about under-delivered PPE, being underpaid, and not being prioritised as high risk while working with Covid-19 patients.
She also mentions how many of SA's citizens, nurses included, are suffering as a result of all the retrenchments which have taken place during the nationwide lockdown.
In the viral video she can be heard calling the ANC "corrupt as hell". Local SA citizens agreed with most of what the lady was saying, reacting to the post nearly 14 000 times. Here are some of their comments.
"It's not only the nurses hey, we all had enough of this government and their lies its unfair that they proving that black people can't govern themselves."
"This anger towards the ANC regime is a ticking time bomb, the day it explodes SA will burn to the ground. See what kind of angry society you are creating because of your corrupt actions."
Briefly.co.za also reported Former president Jacob Zuma won't be making his planned return to the State Capture Inquiry. Eric Mabuza, who represents the politician, claims that Zuma is far too busy preparing for his corruption trial. Mabuza further claims that the dates for the ex-president's appearance had been set without any communication from the Zondo Inquiry.
The appearance had been set for next week after Zuma had postponed due to ill health earlier this year, reports eNCA.
Zuma's upcoming corruption trial relates to allegations that Thales, an arms company, had bribed the former president in exchange for protection over a decade ago.
The trial has dragged with both the state prosecutor and Zuma's legal team accusing the other side of deliberately delaying proceedings. Zuma had tried, in vain, to obtain a permanent stay of prosecution in the matter which the ex-president claims is politically motivated.
