BUSI MAVUSO: High-flying criminals will get their comeuppance
The NPA is slowly beefing up and joint action by business, the government and civil society is sure to yield results
SA has so many problems, with the coronavirus the latest crisis to add to our recession woes, that I’m sure many people sometimes feel overwhelmed.
So when I tell you that more than R100m is estimated to be lost to the fiscus every day due to illicit trade in goods, the intention is not to tip you over into full despair and to give up on the country. Similarly, don’t despair at the slow pace of prosecutions coming out of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). The important message is that tackling each challenge in a methodical, sensible manner is the way to overcome each one. And strong moves are afoot to tackle all facets of crime in SA.
