Corruption: The West Vs Africa

Well another one bites the dust. Another large, respectable and trusted organisation, a large employer that would have many applicants longing for an opportunity, another company with clout is once again caught with its trousers down. KPMG is the newest addition to the list.

My point being that the next time Africa (or any other developing country) comes up as a discussion, let him who is without sin cast the first stone (John 8: 7). Let those who live in a perfect, crime free world, where everyone and every organisation is trustworthy cast the first stone.

…. I think I hear the footsteps of critics walking away. I hear the sound of rocks being dropped back onto the ground from where they were lifted.

Hypocrisy is the trait that will hinder EVERY single society in EVERY part of the world from true progress. From the enforcement of the law, to healthcare, to jobs, to clean streets, to security, to aid, to etc, hypocrisy stands as the single most important mountain of hinderance.

When making your next decision, from this moment on, think of the bigger picture, think of your real reasons, think of real justice, look beyond yourself and if we all did that, the world will be a better place.

I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror,
I'm Asking Him To Change His Ways,
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer,
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place,
Take A Look At Yourself,
And Then Make A Change!

Michael Jackson, "Man in the mirror"

If you've heard it all before, well, why haven't you acted upon it?

Common sense is not very common.

You have nailed it on the head about corruption. We are all hasty sometimes to blame our governments on corruption..not that they should not be blamed but the real origin of corruption in African States is the West. It is funny how they cast the stones in Africa about corruption when they themsleves and their corportions are so corrupt. The only difference is the scale of stealing with respect to the size of the nation's pie.
Yes, one of the good Ol' big 5 KPMG is under fire for cooking the books and how most in accounting/finance profession have sought to be part of this "reputable" Company.
