Where does the buck stop?

Published:Friday | April 28, 2017 | 12:00 AMTHE EDITOR, Sir:

I feel as if I am aboard a pilotless ship. Over the last few months, many citizens have expressed concern about matters of fiscal irresponsibility and careless administrative bungling, but nothing is ever heard of these by way of concern or an investigation. Is there anyone concerned?

We hear of contracts questionably awarded without the content being scrutinised and millions paid to the recipient, and the minister with responsibility has no knowledge of the content. Is the minister ever made to explain, or told to rescind, the contract? There is deafening silence, and the taxpayers' money is gone like the wind.

Is there anyone in charge? Where does the buck stop?
