GOOD has released a statement asserting that it welcomes the consequences dealt to government officials who are implicated in the Beitbridge border corruption scandal.
GOOD’s Secretary-General, Brett Herron penned a statement on Wednesday, 7 October 2020, clarifying the party’s stance on the Beitbridge border corruption scandal. The political party stated that it will welcome whatever consequences are faced by the officials implicated in the questionable dealings and erection of the border. The new border reportedly cost some R37 million, and is already being infiltrated by illegal foreign nationals.
The statement reiterated the sentiments of the party’s leader, Patricia de Lille, when she first addressed suggestions that she was involved in the corruption. The statement read, “Patricia de Lille, the leader of GOOD, inherited a national government department widely implicated in many high-profile cases of corruption.”
The statement then went on to absolve suggestions of any wrongdoing by de Lille, claiming that she is merely attempting to address the innate corruption in her department. Again, similar to the minister’s own statement, the party concluded by claiming that de Lille is working the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) to root out the corrupt officials behind the botched job.
