Sygnia does not make any political donations to parties or candidates.

Everyone has the right as individuals to donate and vote according to their personal preference.

She says for those individuals the amounts donated were worth it to achieve an end to corruption.

She agrees that political donations should be transparent.

But then that transparency should apply to every political party and every single political candidate.

These kind of donations are phenomena the world over, the adds.

The only way you can then protect against potential corruption that could follow is to make sure that all political donations are disclosed and public.
