South African Government Members of Parliament are spending large amounts of cash as though ‘money grows on trees’. And they are definitely not shameless about showing off their new over-priced cars, houses, clothing and many others.
But, where is their money actually coming from?
In a disclosed response to a parliamentary question posed by the Democratic Alliance (DA) Member of Parliament, Desiree Van Der Walt, it was revealed that Public Service and Administration Deputy Minister, Ayanda Dlodlo, has spent R1.5-million of public money on two cars, in only 18-days.
So, is the government lying when they tell taxpayers that they are cutting down spending on frills, after spending R750,000.00 on an Audi A8 3.0 TDI Quatrro Tiptronic and R735,700.00 on an Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI Tiptronic? It seems like 2016 is not different to 2017. Another politician was revealed to splatter extensive amounts on motor vehicle wheels.
The countries toilets are speeding down the drains, causing a lost generation of youngster who is no longer willing to search for work. The African National Congress (ANC) is will to spend large sums of money, rather than investing it into basic education and skills development courses that are not available to a lot of young people.
The DA is taking a stand to the wasteful use of citizen taxes, urging Dlodlo to return the cars and buy a cheaper car instead.
