    Katika hali ya kushangaza, Rais wa Afrika ya Kusini Bw. Kgalema Motlanthe amekataa kufanyika kwa uchunguzi dhidi ya serikali iliyokuwa chini ya Thabo Mbeki kuhusu dili ya silaha. Hii ni sawa na JK kama alivyokataa kufanya uchunguzi kuhusu rada iliyonunuliwa chini ya Utawala wa Fisadi Mkapa. Kwa habari zaidi soma hapa chini......:-

    JOHANNESBURG - President Kgalema Motlanthe is under fire for rejecting calls for a probe into the controversial multi-billion rand arms deal.

    “President Motlanthe’s decision represents a continuation of the arms deal cover-up by (ousted former President Thabo) Mbeki,” said Independent Democrats leader Patricia de Lille, who first blew the lid on alleged widespread corruption in the deal.

    The ruling party was sending the message to its cadres that it was acceptable to commit corruption and divert resources from the poor, she charged.

    “By rejecting the call by clergymen, academics, authors, activists and politicians for a commission of inquiry into the deal, the ANC as a whole condones corruption and rejects the democratic principles of accountability and transparency,” said De Lille.

    Democratic Alliance arms deal spokesman Eddie Trent accused Motlanthe of toeing the party line instead of serving the public.

    “President Motlanthe has shown himself to be a loyal cadre of the ANC first and a servant of the people second.”

    He added: “The President’s refusal to set up this commission forms part of a trend within the ANC government where opportunities to get to the bottom of alleged wrongdoing are blocked at every turn in order to protect the narrow interests of a few.”

    Trent said Motlanthe’s decision was more inexplicable as it came fresh on the heels of allegations in the British media that as much as £40 million (more than half-a-billion rand) was paid to a number of individuals in South Africa to help promote BAE’s stake in the arms deal.

    “The arms deal will continue to resurface like a cancer eating away at the body politic, and raising questions about whether the government is really committed to fighting corruption,” he added.

    Presidential spokesman Thabo Masebe told journalists in Cape Town yesterday that there would be no commission of inquiry.
