Car trouble

Interesting article, but this where the dilemma kicks in, reputable as Noseweek may be, who in their right mind is going to believe a used car salesman?
e-Natis is a joke. Some time ago a statistic was mooted that 3 out of every 5 taxis on the road had been stolen and re-registered. In order to do this, there has to be collusion at every point of the process, from the SAPS clearance to the re-registration process.
Corruption is endemic to these bodies, how will we ever arrive at an efficient administration of justice, if the individuals charged with administering it are the chief practicers of corruption?
This is the African conundrum.
