Digressing from the actual topic , however and this in no way suggesting that corruption has any place in society, it has to be pointed out though that in most cases in south africa , the money stolen in south africa is put back into the fiscus by these guys lavish living.
whether its spending 100k on a night out at a restaurant or tipping the waiter 5k , that money finds it way back into the system.
All these politicians love the high life, they will all be bankrupt in a short while and the money will be in the system.
One good thing with these politicians , not many, take the millions out of the country like the Guptas AND THE MANY previously advantaged businesses that was tantamount to white collar crime, which in another word was/is corruption.
I am in the entertainment business, and I know that no sane person can fork out 1 bar on his wifes 50th birthday that I just did this past weekend.
But a good potion of that spend is already in circulation this morning amongst the service providers with salaries or overheads to sort out or even booking a holiday.
