Although the quotation is not necessarily applicable in all its gory detail to the South Africa of 1999, there may be enough that is relevant to cause at least an uncomfortable shiver of recognition. In any event even the most casual purveyor of the situation of bribery and corruption in South Africa from the viewpoint of effective remedies, competent enforcement of sanctions, regional co-operation for the harmonisation of legislation and the implementation of carefully weighed proposals for proactive legal reform, may to some extent be hard put upon to find much more than cold comfort for his or her investigative efforts.
