A commendation for a job in progress
It is with much praise that I commend your newspaper for investigating many of the larger cases of corruption in the current administration when many watchdogs whose job it is to detect these wrongs, are totally silent.
Take, for instance, the Auditor General Office. The job of this entity is to do what you are doing but it is as silent as the cemetery. One wonders if they are actually doing what they are paid to do. The reports coming out from the Auditor General Office are related to activities from bygone years and even then do not point out corrupt contracts which are numbering in the hundreds.
They are only giving general opinions and not specific cases of embezzlement like what we are reading daily. I am just wondering whether their jobs are confined to past eras and not current affairs.
Secondly, it is in the interest of the opposition parties to be able to detect corrupt activities in a timely manner, like the most recent in the Ministry of Health where a shed cost $20m as per your newspaper. Yet these parties rely on a newspaper to highlight these jailable offences, then they add a few comment to satisfy their supporters.
It is a shame! It is the primary duty of these parties to detect these wickedness first before any media house. Shame on all these parties who stole, and those who fail to know about what, when and who stole.
I think all those organisations mentioned above whose job this newspaper is doing should pay for this service of detecting and highlighting the thieves. In fact the inability of the watchdogs to perform their legitimate duty might be contributing to this escalation of thievery.
We do not want them to blast our ears in only denouncing the thieves when they are discovered by this paper, but we also want them to have a mechanism to know about the thieves in a timely manner just like how this newspaper is doing it.
Once again I want to thank this newpaper for doing the jobs of at least 10 entities ( I didn’t mention the rest) which are supposed to be in their interest.
