The current regime has begun tackling bribery and corruption, let’s hope it will be impartial, sustainable and acts as a deterrent.

How many can honestly claim they have not violated the law or gotten political preferences in terms of procurement tenders, land allocations, licenses, board appointments, share transactions and price control? Let their conscience speak.
