Unfortunately corrucption in the Eastern Cape was never addressed even during the tenure of Mr Mandela & Mbeki respectively. As people who hail from that province they should have known better of whats transpiring there. As kwaito guys say Manje se ku moshagele and the province is rotten to the core. I feel sorry for anyone living in that province as greediness rules their provincial government.
