I read in one of the newspapers where a judge was complaining that they are not well remunerated by the public and that is a sure source of corruption. “Wherever you have a system where you have a lot of control there will be corruption.

You could limit to states, you could limit to local governments even to the wards if you can but somebody is such that once you hear the name, it is somebody you will say, “No, I have heard that name before” either in the country or in his profession; if he is a doctor, a journalist or whatever, all areas, we have heard the name before, okay then I will make an effort to know more about him,” IBB said.
