"When you are compromised, you are disempowered and you can't talk back - even if you know the guy is wrong, because they knew they were wrong. We could not talk, because we were costing the economy a lot. I said to my team that when you are costing the economy, you have no right to talk. Fix your house. When your house is fixed, then you can talk back and now we are talking back," says Koko.
