South Africans have shown that they are going to fight for this country whatever comes their way. There are so many things that are happening in this country that need to be looked into with a different eye, especially what the ANC government is trying to do. It's like they are intentionally trying to collapse this country and they thought that people would not see what they are trying to do. This is no longer 1994 where people can just be taken for a ride.
The R22 million flag has been on people's lips since it was announced and South Africans made it very clear that they are not interested in such a thing. We saw how the minister tried to convince the people that they need a flag that will light at night while there are many South Africans who are struggling to make ends meet.
However, it now looks like the project will not go ahead as planned. The minister of arts and culture Nathi Mthethwa was not been able to absorb the pressure that was coming from the public as they criticized the whole project before it even started.
Minister of Sport, Arts, and Culture Nathi Mthethwa has since "directed his department to review the process related to the monumental flag in its totality", a department statement indicated.
We know that even the EFF has been very vocal about this 22 million flag and they advised the minister to take the R22 million and make it to good use. This has indeed shown that the department has money and they just don't know what to do with it. There are way much better projects that they can come up with that will be able to help our artists but the only thing that they thought about was to revive the steel industry.
