We have encountered news about public funds being misused to build stadiums and statues which were either not completed or not started at all. These projects have been reported to have cost millions of south african rands while the service wasn't delivered which raised the question, where did the money go? This has lead to Mmusi Maimane sharing his thoughts of the seriousness of this matter.
He hinted how the general public are struggling financially with someone being without food for days while our political leaders misuse and live lavishly using the tax payers money. With unemployment being in the rise knowing that part of your money is being spent to fund expensive life styles is a pain.
Public funds are not a laughing matter.
"People go to bed hungry, people have had businesses shutdown during the pandemic. People are being evicted. Every cent spent must be accounted for.
Every cent spent must meet all ethical standards. Whether it’s a stadium or a gig." The former member of the D.A shared his opinion on Twitter and has received positive feedback.
Most of what makes the headlines in relation to public funds being squandered might be a scratch in the surface, what about those that haven't been caught? Multiplied by the government departments we have? What's your view? Do you think Maimane makes sense or is it just another attempt to discredit the ruling party?
