UPDATE: Zuma test: 1/25: Test Failed


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

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.

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?)
