The problem of the South African government's intention to provide $50 million to Cuba does not sit well with South Africans, who believe that they need this money more than Cuba, and hence it cannot be given.South Africa must turn a blind eye to the agony of Cuba while illegal blockades and U.S. sanctions choke its economy, the country's minister of foreign relations said Wednesday.
Today, Naledi Pandor, minister of International Relations and Cooperation, abruptly alters her opinion.
Minister of international relations and cooperation Naledi Pandor now denies that the country ever intended to grant Cuba R50 million in cash.
Naledi Pandor: "We want to offer humanitarian aid to Cuba in the form of food and medical supplies that will be acquired from South African firms and transported to Cuba in an effort to alleviate the suffering of the Cuban people."
