Mpumelelo Mkhabela says what people can learn from the State Capture Inquiry is not to trust politicians as they can be bought.

As more witnesses come forward to give evidence in the State Capture Inquiry, it is becoming clear that many involved may have proverbially sold their souls to the devil.

What lessons are there to be learned?

READ: 'ANC should assist in state capture inquiry and those implicated should testify'

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, political analyst at the Department of Political Sciences at Unisa, Mpumelelo Mkhabela says there are lessons that can be learnt from the inquiry and one of them is to mistrust politicians as they can be bought.

I am suggesting a healthy but strong dose of mistrust and what that would do is that citizens will always be vigilant beyond going to the ballot box and choose the political party that they like.

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, From the Department of Political Sciences at Unisa

They will be vigilant after the elections and they will always watch out for what the people that they have elected are doing or not doing.
