Eish, I only hope Botswana manages to avoid the worst excesses of South Africa. Your levels of maladministration and corruption are absolutely astounding. I would be hard pressed to see any light at the end of this tunnel.

Sounds like one company for each of Zuma's children....

Please leave the 'real children' out of corruption talks.

Keith Sendwe bought it today, apparently. Anyway, I love the accompanying pic, it's perhaps the only funny thing about the mess that is CIPRO. Well that, and now, the news about criminal Keith, I suppose.

These statistics are irrefutable evidence that CIPRO is being used for fraudsters to steal identities. Surely SARS should investigate every instance of duplicate tax numbers and how a person who has not been born can get registered? They don't have an ID No. or doesn't CIPRO verify ID Numbers? The auditors who have over 40,000 enterprises must have the largest practices in the world. What a shambles? We must have as much chance of coming straight as my friend who is a hunchback.

This sounds like tenderpreneur heaven: for God's sake don't let any of the Zuma & Mandela scum find out about this!

Zuma will be right onto this. To do what Zuma always does: Absolutely Sweet Fanny Adams. Niks. Fokol. Lutho.

The crisp question here is "CIPRO is going to do what about this?" Some swindling, blame slashing, spin doctoring and the rabbit is out of the hat to display another multi-million rand project to fix what the other system had not fixed due to swindling, blame slashing and spin doctoring.

Dear Mr Nose.
Do you want more of us to emigrate? These stats are shocking

Editor's Note
Do you honestly think emigrating would help you? Mr. Nose doesn't think so. The problems can only be fixed by all of us working together. But it makes no sense when a single auditing firm claims to be responsible for 40,000 corporations leave alone 94,000... simple maths (Mr. Nose isn't that good at matters of mathematics though) ... a year has at most 2,920 hours (175,200 min) -if the auditors work weekends and public holidays, which they don't-... so they would spend at most, 4.38min auditing and filing returns for the 40,000 companies!
