    The fact that these highly corrupted chaps openly flaunt their wealth by owning plush mansions, high end cars etc shows that top to bottom people (including enforcers) are involved in collecting bribes and getting cuts per their position! Imho, all Escoms should be privatised to dramatically reduce corruption and users would also get high quality service unlike the sloppy services which these escoms provide!
