Sometimes you have to wonder if South Africa is a country or not, there are constantly things that are done that take us back. Surely, there has to be transparency with the state's funds that are utilized by the local government. Even worse bulk of the money that’s been misused is taxpayers' hard-earned money. There’s barely any sort of development in different communities and that’s a massive concern. What are citizens doing about the lack of development in their respective communities? Even worse, who takes their time to investigate the misuse of funds that are meant for the community? Things have gotten from bad to worse in Mzansi when it comes to financing matters within government.
Now, the Economic Freedom Fighters deputy president Floyd Shivambu has taken to his social media platform to share photos of an R15 million stadium opening that occurred in the Eastern Cape. Shivambu was shocked and disappointed that a whopping R15 million was paid to build a stadium. Looking at the photos, no one would say that the whole stadium, including labour costs and material, reached R15 million, there’s just no way! Shivambu felt that this was another project from ANC that has gone wrong. As he couldn’t believe that the Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality was proud of their so-called stadium. “An ANC Municipality in the Eastern Cape, Enoch Mgijima has opened what they call a stadium… R15 MILLION was paid to build this thing & they are proud of it,” said Shivambu on his official Twitter account.
On the first of November, there will be local government elections in Mzansi. Now, Shivambu has stated that if ANC is capable of building such an R15 million stadium, then they have no shame and they must be voted out of power. As they’ve done nothing productive with the whole R15 million, which should benefit the community. “The people of South African must vote these people out of power because they have no shame. None whatsoever! R15m for this?” added Shivambu on his official Twitter account.
