Corruption is a big issue in South Africa – from tenders worth millions being given illegally to companies with ties to high ranking officials in the government to a whopping R500 billion going missing during lockdown.
There is no denying that corruption has crippled the ANC over the past several years and despite President Cyril Ramaphosa’s best efforts, many believe the ruling party will never recover.
However, while thousands of fed-up citizens have called for the ANC to “voetsek”, one man praised the ruling party for allegedly stealing money.
On Tuesday, Mr Handsome shared a video of an unidentified man commending the government for corruption.
The man explains that there is nothing wrong with government officials spending the state money because pastors do it in church too. He added that he’s happy to see black people enjoying money.

Take a look at the video below:
The clip quickly gathered over 9 200 views and it left many dumbfounded. Many could not believe the man would defend a government that is stealing from the poor while enriching themselves.
Social media user, @CYPRIANSIKHUMB1, wrote:
“Apparently he has PhD in stupidity.”
Twitter user, @Mtolana, said:
“I hope he is just being sarcastic, if not, then we are in trouble. People should learn on how the economy works and the effects of corruption. Examples are Zim, DRC, in fact most African states. It is a black child’s future that is destroyed by corruption and not a white child.”
Briefly.co.za previously reported on another video. However, instead of applauding the government, a furious nurse slammed them for being “corrupt as hell.” 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.
