  1. There are several issues to be considered when one opens Pandora’s box of shoddy work and corruption. Sure, monitoring is very necessary but more than that there needs to be real and workable performance contracts for every employee, consultant etc., and these contracts need to be enforced ie, shoddy work – no pay, corruption – no job /no contract – jail instead!

    A special bi partisan strike force of incorruptible people whom can roam the country at will to investigate and charge the guilty needs to be established and funded without delay. But then, it is of no value laying charges unless the Justice System is cleaned up first.

    There is more to the open Pandora’s box than just monitoring
