South Africa is importing toothpicks and ice cream sticks - Gayton McKenzie


Famous South African politician Gayton McKenzie has shared a post on social media stating that he just found out that South Africa is importing toothpicks and ice cream sticks into the country.

"I have just learned that SA is importing all its toothpicks and ice cream sticks, I believe that this is not because of a lack of ideas but a lack of funding for people with entrepreneurial ideas."

Some South African nationals have reacted to this in different ways, take a look at some of their responses below;

@Sibusis74420857 tweeted,

"You just learned this now. Some of us knew about it many many years ago. Your reasoning for lack of funding is not correct. Would you like me to clarify for you why most of the products we consume are imported?"

@Constitution_94 tweeted,

"You are leading a municipality now, you can't lament about everything as if you are not in charge. Open factories for toilet papers (sanitation project)."

@J10_ZA tweeted,

"Do you know the role and limitations of a mayor?"

@JimmyRamokgopa tweeted,

"Is the USA still dumping their chicken here? I remember them forcing us to import over an agreement they had during Obama's time."

@ismailsahib tweeted,

"I tried getting low-interest IDC funding to expand my business to compete against white monopoly capital businesses. I was told to use a consultant who charges 10% of the amount. I refused and did the application myself and I was turned down. Corruption is the reason BEE fails."
