Whether the public or private sector, there has to be accountability - By Mpho Mathithibane
Discussions on corruption are usually prolonged debates resulting in the development of extensive policies, controls and procedures, yet yielding little to no results in curbing the scourge. There is no hard and fast rule why corruption takes place; its intricacies are inherently linked to aspects such as the moral fiber of society, a sense of entitlement and a general lawlessness. It speaks volumes about socio-economic disparages and in the same turnabout greed. The business private sector seems to be head and shoulders above the public sector in terms of contributing to economic development and employment opportunities. One would think that with this increased business activity, there will be a correlation in increases of corrupt activities in this sector.
