Human rights activist Nomzamo Mbatha, does not shy away from expressing her opinions on issues that are affecting the continent at large. Nomzamo has used her platforms to fight for injustice in the country and to serve as a beacon of hope to many ordinary South Africans.
The starlet who recently donated 1.5 million with her foundation The Lighthouse towards the Covid-19 relief, vented out her frustrations yesterday, about the effects of corruption.
We may all agree that corruption is very rife in the country and globally it is one of the challenges that many people are currently experiencing, as people just loot the resources of the government aimed at tackling various problems we may encounter.
Nomzamo said corruption has to be one of the most disheartening tools of destruction, it stunts growth, change, justice and liberation.

We cannot deny that because we have also seen how corruption has affected our country and we hope that, as we try to overcome the challenges imposed by the Covid-19 outbreak, those who tend to loot money, will stop.
Yesterday president Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the government will inject a whopping R500 billion into the social and economic support packages, this will provide much-needed relief to the current challenges we are experiencing.
Tweeps reacted to her tweet.
Unfortunately corruption defines our country. You can’t separate South Africa from corruption
