Opinion: Give the country what investors want, confidence!

With a new year in motion, 702 host Ray White hopes the African National Congress (ANC) January 8 statement will be dedicated to addressing the scourge of corruption, unemployment, and crime.

The party celebrates 106 years with a rally in East London this weekend.

Our country should be the powerhouse of Africa yet we suffer from unemployment, crime, the drug problem and the big one, corruption.

Ray White, 702 show host

As the ANC celebrates 106 years of being the first liberation movement, hopefully some time will be given this weekend or this month to thinking of how to rid this country of these scourges.

Ray White, 702 show host

It's time to take that gigantic step forward and give the country what investors so desperately seek, confidence.
