In this book, a compressed account about why
government officials are stuck between a rock and a
hard place is provided. The answer to the question:
To what extent has conflict of interest become a
problem in South Africa, was widely attempted from
the beginning of the book cutting through the bones
to the marrow. The book took both a radical and a
softer approach to the theoretical understanding of
conflict of interest. Among other observations, it
must be pointed out that conflict of interest occurs
at the fluid interface between personal interests
and public duty. A barometer check at both the
developed or underdeveloped worlds suggests that
this phenomenon occurs in both worlds. Among other
recommendations, with the history unfolding, it
becomes crystal clear that a legal solution is not a
panacea to eliminate conflict of interest practices
hence a need to integrate the legal imperative with
good governance and ethical conduct. This book is
therefore a must to read by practitioners,
academics, politicians, business including civil
society movements as it has a potential to sensitise
accounting authorities about the plague of
conflict of interest.
