Looks like they have identified one scape goat already, pretty quick work even before the investigation of the cause is completed. What next, all the RTP and RTN parties will be asked to return their back handers ?

Maybe both. Until an investigation is carried out it seems very premature, but maybe they know something we dont?

It's always transferred, never fired. Why aren't these guys ever fired?

 

Because they are needed, possibly in other positions, to ensure proceeds of corruption are still channeled appropriately upwards.

I suspect these kinds of moves serve two concurrent purposes …

 

1) it’s a societally acceptable way to “punish” someone…

 

2) it also avoids the loss-of-face that comes with making such a move to a public officer and in relation to a very public incident. 

 

Kind of like kids who get a score of 50/100… most will see the “50” and know that s/he failed …. but the use of 50/100 also avoids the labeling/shaming/embarrassment and paperwork that comes with having to deal with a true failing mark.


At the level of the person in question, anyone who is involuntary transferred will be known as “…that guy”… but avoids a formal label of being demoted etc…

Too bloody late.... these establishments are allowed to operate under the watch of chiefs and police.

Time to drain the swamp.
