Good money when mixed with the bad turns all money bad. Good crops when grown with bad crops get crowded out by bad. Corrupt FIFA officials are like bad money and weeds, they should not be allowed to keep their positions along with honest officials because they will soon turn all others to be like them – bad. They should be investigated and if found to be guilty as accused should be punished or expelled. They should be made to be accountable for their actions. In life, when individuals are left unsupervised in their assignments or are left to their whims and caprices, they take liberties which often results in corrupt practices.
One of the easiest ways to eliminate this practice is through imposition of strong deterrent which includes expulsion or heavy fines depending on the level of corruption. FIFA should not leave these officials unpunished. The strongest message should be sent to everyone that corruption is not tolerated within the organization. No where in the world has corruption resulted in good governance. On the contrary it has rendered all human associations prostrate. It is good that this ugly practice was caught at this time, it should be extirpated or it will go the way of all other systems which were bedeviled by this debilitating human vice.
The concerned fans should be reassured that their support of the program is not taken for granted. They should not be made to feel that they have been taken for a ride. One way of doing so is by punishing the offenders in the strongest way possible. The FIFA should be influenced in their decision by what might happen if the fans feel cheated and withdraw their support. They FIFA organization will starve of funds and that will mark beginning of an end of such a uniting world sporting event. FIFA should spare no stick in order not to spoil the child.
