Mr Speaker, as I was saying, in this country today, corruption has become institutionalised under the ANC. We are being bombarded with information about premiers, Ministers, mayors, government officials and even the police being involved in corruption daily, and nobody is prepared to do anything about it.
The President and other Ministers keep telling us about their stand against corruption, but nothing happens. We are now being made to understand that the Minister of Communications is trying to micro-manage the SABC Board, which has clearly decided to make Morning Live the propaganda machinery of the ANC.
Today, President Zuma is in Kroonstad, where a doctor at the Boitumelo Hospital has been awarded a tender for R4,6 million, without going through tender procedures, to examine 500 patients for eye problems during weekends. This doctor brings three nurses from Sebokeng to examine these patients every weekend.
In the same province, when people ask about this they are told that it is a political directive. In the same province, the MEC for co- operative governance and human settlements gets a report about investigations with conclusive evidence that petrol cards for cars that are not running are being used for dubious transactions in the Ngwathe Municipality. This involves Parys, Koppies and Edenville.
Despite this report having been received by the MEC in August 2009, nothing has happened. Instead, the policeman who was involved in the investigation and about to make arrests in respect of this matter was removed from the case and immediately transferred elsewhere. [Time expired.] [Applause.]
