8:09 pm
was the a.n.c. says its partners are free to participate but it can't be happy at the level of corruption being uncovered by the opposition democratic alliance which won control of johannesburg at the last election. not far from the march god dogs protect and all. most empty construction site there's supposed to be a new power station here where we this is just one example where almost five million u.s. dollars was paid to a contractor without doing any job i mean if you look around here you can see that nothing has been done keenan lost his job at the site and now his community suffers frequent power cuts because the upgrades have stopped it's. something you need. in. keenan is the victim of corruption that cost south africa about two billion dollars a year but it's far from certain that it will cost the president his job no matter
