Well done Mr Pillay..youre a champion...but I cant help wondering when you will step on the toes of the ministers with their hands in the cookie jar? Will you be protected? I certainly hope so, because youre weeding them out one by one! "Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace." Buddha

Thank you for publishing this article, and kudos to Mr Pillay for fighting against the kleptocrats. He is a true patriot and I wish there were more of them in government.
