Corrupt officials destroy our future leaders

CRIME does not pay. I would like to thank the police for the arrest of those officials who allegedly leaked exam papers in Mpumalanga.

I'm happy they will learn a lesson that destroying the future of our future leaders has no place in this world. One wonders why every year there is a scandal in Mpumalanga. It is because of corrupt officials and learners.

As I write now there are students in Piet Retief, Ermelo and Nelspruit who are not admitted to tertiary institutions because their documents are not in order or their year-end marks are suspicious.

Let us stop this bug of corruption and incompetent educators who do not teach our children but rely heavily on making short cuts for them.

Makhosonke Mkhaliphi, Piet Retief
