The findings of the Seriti Commission into the Arms Deal, which stated that no corruption was involved in the transactions, has sparked a national debate.
Cape Town mayor, Patricia De Lille, opened the can of worms as leader of the IFP which then took four years to bring to finality.
702/Cape Talk's #FridayStandIn for Redi Tlhabi, Dion Chang, gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding a broad range of issues.
Listen to the interview below:
The time has come for South Africans to realise that these commissions are a waste of money. How many commissions have we had? How much have we spent?— S'khathele, caller from Midrand
On the Seriti Commission, I think we are all being taken for fools. The public knew what the outcome would be. What conclusion did we think we were going to get?— Leonard, caller in Edenvale
The whitewashing of the Arms Deals is nonsense because there's a conflict of interest. We should stop paying taxes until we have a clean government in place.— Rosalene, caller in Florida
The four-year investigation headed by Judge Willie Seriti has cost the taxpayers R113 million.
Surely Jacob Zuma should be held accountable for the complete waste of time the Seriti Commission has turned out to be.— David, caller in Gardens
