UPDATE: Zuma test: 1/25: Test Failed



Remember?

ZUMA SAID: "we support clean and corrupt free government"

CASUS:
The Minister of Transport S'bu Ndebele accepted a R1.1m Mercedes Benz S500 from a group of contractors with contracts worth more than R400m in the department.

QUESTION: Why should Ndebele get a Merc for doing his job? Ndebele asked Zuma to make a decision.

WHAT ZUMA DID: He gave the nod to Ndebele to keep the Merc.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Zuma missed an opportunity to set the correct tone for his administration by ensuring that special favours for a well connected governing elite are not tolerated.


GOOD NEWS:
Ndebele gave the Merc back and will use the money to educate emerging contractors (OK, he did so after intense pressure, but he did it, didn't he?)
