The 2017/18 Budget speech by the Minister of Finance was called “Changing the Paradigm; Putting the Economy on a Sustainable Path”. At the end of its reading, the song “Help me make it through the night” kept resonating in my head.

Despite what the local politicians and other influential pundits may say about removing corruption from this nation, I fear it is too well embedded in all aspects at the higher levels of our society.
