CORRUPTION is Out of Control Under South Africa's ANC Regime

The  following was written by Carla C Viana on Facebook on the  TollFreeGP page.

This list does not even mention the nepotism and all the tender corruptions!

Make yourself comfortable before you start.

"Agreed  someone has to pay for the upkeep, maintenance and improvement  of our grand roads so that we can be proud of our roads when  compared to the rest of Africa BUT HOLD ON this anc government  and their petrol fuel levies has already been collecting vast  billions over many many decades for this exact cost. YOU CAN"T  come along now in 2012 and impose your citizens / give us the  guilt trip where anc appointees have indeed squandered and  depleted the reserves intended for this very cost.  Accountability first and foremost and where such wastage and  thieving of petrol state coffers was found corrupted, those  officials to be removed from their posts and such funds  refunded back into the petrol state collected coffers. We the  people have long since paid for such improvements - just how  was the road accident fund and it's cripplingly multibillion  collapse that transpired under the leadership of and when the  anc appointees took charge of such petrol levies and state  collected mechanisms. If the RAF is anything to go by on -  where anc directorship appointees pay themselves and award  themselves muti million rand performance bonuses salaried  cheques I rest my case. NO VOTE of confidence with those  managing such affairs they forced such state petrol collected  coffers into bankruptcy and now expect and demand the public  must pay.... !!!!!!!" - Carla C Viana.

Mind-blowing  stuff!
There should not be one single person homeless or  hungry in SA. Government HAS (or had) the money to help the poor!!!
They will not get one extra cent tax money (in whatever way or means) from my wallet before this out-of-control spending has stopped.
No wonder the ANC Regime wants to silence the media - they don't want information like the above and the now pension fund scandal surrounding the e-toll system to leak  out!!
The above list is not even  complete!!

The above list was compiled from information obtained from the websites below:

    R200m fraud at E Cape health department
    2012-05-15 07:44

    East London - A preliminary report by the Special Investigation Unit on a probe into the Eastern Cape health department revealed corruption involving R200m, according to a report on Tuesday.

    The investigation, launched in December, found that 15 900 department officials were illegally receiving child support grants totalling R58m per year, the Daily Dispatch reported.

    The leaked report also revealed that almost 4 000 officials were illegally receiving housing subsidies from the human settlements department amounting to R86m.

    Assets valued around R19m, which were transferred to district offices, apparently went missing.

    The health department, which has a long history of fraud and profiteering, reportedly paid R42.8m to 226 companies linked to 235 civil servants, while 174 officials' spouses were linked to companies that benefited R9m.

    The report indicated problems faced by investigators included missing supply chain management documents, believed to have been stolen or sold to a recycling plant.

    Health department spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo acknowledged the difficulties.

    "The department of health is committed to fighting fraud and corruption and anyone accused of such allegations will be pursued, regardless of who they are," he said.

    The department lost R800m to corruption between January 2009 and June 2010.
