Cuban engineers paid R300,000 more than South African engineers

The Cuban engineers brought to South Africa by the Department of Water Affairs and Sanitation will be paid up to R300,000 more per year than South African engineers who could do the same job.

This is according to labour union Solidarity, who today shared new details on the department's project ahead of its court challenge to have the importing of the engineers declared invalid.

The union confirmed that the Cuban engineers were given employment contracts and would be paid salaries, contrary to what water affairs minister Lindiwe Sisulu’s has stated in public following backlash over the project.

#keepitlocal ...

There are cadres that would have pocketed that ....

Who says the cadres aren't getting their cut?

As part of their remuneration, the engineers will receive flight tickets for holidays in Cuba, furnished accommodation, and food and telephone allowances, Solidarity said.

Willing to bet someone tendered to house the Cubans and furnish their accommodation.

How do I get Cuban citizenship?
We're still playing the game where we're trying to figure out where you're from.

I honestly believe the ANC has a kickback arrangement with Cuba. "Hey, we'll hire some of your guys and you send us X amount back for our party bank accounts as a donation". They're desperately trying to find new loopholes since their private backers have (apparently) basically disappeared since CR passed the party funding law.

Also, seems I have to send Solidarity more money.
