No they did not run out. They are still getting their fat boat load of cash from the tax payer. But why pay for something if they can rather pocket that cash and buy new BMWs or spend it renaming a town?

And I'll bet those houses were sub let as well.

Sadly, I think that is exactly what they are doing.
The ANC is symbolic, they represent emancipation. Many ideolise their leaders, and not all people perceive corruption the same as others.

There are more people asking why people are voting DA and FF+. Unless you are a 'peoples' party, minority parties are stigmatized.

Intelligence have almost nothing to do with ideas and ideals. People are driven by emotions, even knowledge can become emotionally tainted.

This tread about ministers not paying rent morphed into one about the Post Office very quickly.

It is like adding Bisto to a sauce that is not thick enough. :D

People are driven by emotions - and perceptions. That's why politicians get away with their cr*p.

Nobody is commenting on the amazing fact that for 1% of your salary, you can get a second house for free. Who decided that was even necessary? Talk about a nominal payment ... one that all those ministers can't even be bothered to make.

This lends credence to the argument to only have Parliament based in a single city. All this wasted rent and travel and for what benefit exactly?
Its worse - they don't pay tax either.

In that case, I am surprised we haven't run out of Bisto. Politicians must be snorting that stuff like oxygen with how thick they are.

Time to get a court order and then send in the sheriff to confiscate their possessions to the value of whatever they owe. Give these cretins the same treatment as any other defaulter will get.

This maybe off topic but does anyone actually audit the SARB and Government Officials?
