But we could do without the moralising. “In order for government to deliver services, in order for the poor people in South Africa to benefit from taxes paid by South Africans, we are trying to generate values in our society, the right kind of values that say we must declare honestly what we earn”, he said.

As for “solidarity”, not much of that is engendered when President Jacob Zuma tells white men they are not wanted.
