In recent years there’s been a huge public outcry over government corruption and “state capture”. The media has rightfully paid excessive attention to the issue and the upcoming ANC elective conference. It has also been reported that the country’s annual budget has a shortfall of R50-billion in terms of revenue income. However, it has also been reported, albeit minutely, that several major local and foreign companies have successfully avoided paying tax. And yet these acts of corruption have not been reported on in the mainstream media and nor have the companies been prosecuted. In today’s show we discuss this serious problem of corporate tax-evasion and corruption and its impact on the country and working class people.
