Despite the insidious effects of repeated scandals, both at the federal and provincial levels, unfortunately our present ruling elite, like their past successors have done nothing to reform the relevant laws, activate the civil society and create any new and effective anti corruption bodies or watch dogs within the public sector and in the society. Indeed, dissatisfaction with the existing corrupt system and corrupt politicians is high but those who matter are not in the mood to improve the system of accountability or to fight the monster of corruption. The few agencies formed to fight corruption such as NAB are involved in corruption. Corruption has demoralized the younger generation and the few upright people who are compelled to quit this country. Is there anyone to control the genie of corruption?
