Good Argument (Daniel Munkombwe)

"The effects of corruption are more severe on our poor who cannot afford alternative public services other than those provided by government. Nor can they afford to pay extra costs associated with bribery, fraud and extortion and other corrupt vices..."
Southern Province Minister Daniel Munkombwe echoing a point we have repeatedly made on this website. Unfortunately, the Minister appears not have to followed the argument to its natural conclusion. The central question is : if corruption is more detrimental on the poor, as rightly argued by Mr Mukombwe, how should that shape his government's approach to fighting corruption?  I answer this question in an earlier post - Corruption Wars – Part 2 (Corruption & The Poor).
