The Cabinet Ministers earn R2,7 million a year plus housing, vehicles, security, medical and many other perks. South Africa has one of the largest Cabinets in the world but zero accountability for the collapse of effective governance in our nation.
It was added that this is just the beginning, top executives in at least 24 government-funded agencies / SOEs get paid more than the president. The patronage network runs deep. President Cyril Ramaphosa is taking a minimum wage compared to other executives at State Owned Enterprises.
This is because he earns shares everywhere (Cyril Ramaphosa)… Some people asked that how on earth does someone earn half a million a month when the very same government says R350 is enough for an adult?
If Tito Mboweni is serious about cutting the public wage bill he must start by revising the ministerial handbook, All benefits must be removed. Cyril Ramaphosa must do away with deputy ministers, they’re a liability. The country benefits nothing from them.
