Corruption: You have a situation where politicians buy ambulances because Min of Health isn't buying or provide drugs to health centres. Instead they are building health centres which was their role, but Min of Works. Why? It is because of the procurement component.

If you go into politics by telling the truth, you will not get elected. It is those who tell lies that are generally elected into political office.

Once you announce that you are contesting in politics, is when you receive an avalanche. This is when churches will remember you, schools will get leaking roofs, burials will become many. If you say no to these, you wont get elected. Politicians are being held at ransom.

You cannot walk a corruption out of a country. It is nice that the political class has become involved, maybe now they will be able to look into campaign financing because that is where the problem really lies. Citizens should hold their leaders accountable.
