There are more than 300 political parties in South Africa but only 6 parties have declared their fundings and what we see is really not something that we have been expecting. The EFF has yet again not declared anything to the IEC and people are really having a hard understanding who is actually funding the party even though Malema said that his party is funded by its members. They do not get money from funders who will be expecting to get tenders once they are in power. Funders always have a motive. They can not just give away their money for nothing. Some of the donations were not interms in money. It is goods donated to the parties.
Some of the donations were not interms in money. It is goods donated to the parties. When it comes to ActionSA 1/5 in kind donations includes items such as a donation of 400 corporate golf shirts for the party, provision of consulting services, policy development, provision of books and other marketing material as well as 950 000(A5) handout brochures.
We know that many South Africans are not happy that Oppenheimer family had donated to ActionSA and the fact that Malema did not declare anything yet again. People are breathing by the wounds. They really don't know what to do after finding that out that the Oppenheimer are literally owning most political parties that are influencial in the country. In simple terms, they control the country whether we like it or not. We must just accept that our politics are captured.
We thought that Black Like Me was one of the company that donated to ActionSA but it did not pop out any cent. Politicians always lie and we must get used to it. If it was not for the IEC, we would still be in the dark thinking that Black Like Me, donated to ActionSA. We also have people even think that Malema is attracting unnecessary attention as he does not make any declaration.
