Business Day gets it right, and wrong

Today’s edition of Business Day kind of gets the point about the Niehaus story: that it is about more than just dishonesty by one individual. But the newspaper gets it wrong when it says that Niehaus “had tried to defraud the Gauteng Development Agency in 2005”. He had, in fact, solicited a bribe from a third party in return for a promise of favourable treatment from the Gauteng government. That is corruption, which makes the Gauteng government’s handling of the issue even more dubious.
