Clearly out government is a bit out of touch with reality and we are almost certain that this is something we can all agree on right? Just in case you are wondering as to what this is about listen up!
The Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa was recently interviewed by the eNCA and he spoke up on how the government is working on a flag project worth R22 000 000.00, yes! 6 zeros! 22 MILLION.
According to Nathi, the flag is apparently 120 meters tall, it will be visible during the day and at night as it will be able to light up, many have asked how is a flag that lights up even a priority in a country currently struggling with load shedding a flag?
In 2020 till late 2021 Nathi Mthethwa was dead silent when musicians and other art creatives lodged a peaceful protest to ask that they at least get a Covid-19 fund relief as they are unable to perform and/or generate income to keep their homestead afloat, but somehow a less than a year later a flag project that is worth much more than what artists were asking for is a priority?
It is absolutely no surprise that Bonang could not hold her anger back she addressed a tweet to the Minister of sports last night.
Is the interest of South African Citizens ever considered when the government sits down and work on their motion plans and/or their way forward?
Citizens are starving, there's load shedding, food prices are ridiculously going up and petrol prices are unreasonable, but for some odd reasons we are spending R22M on a flag?
We are not the only ones who are pretty shocked and rather angered by the Minister's decision as tweeps have been up on their feet battling to understand who gave this project the go ahead and how was it even marked as a priority?
