If salary increases were - as in the private sector - based on performance most would be paying in ... :)

I wouldn't even have a problem with this if the president wasn't an uneducated, barely literate fool.

R2.7million + R250million in perks (cough Nkandla).

Gravy trains wheels are well oiled.

Read the article, it excludes Nklanda and other discrepancies. Plus it is based on previous data between 2009-2012.

this isnt exactly a tech related story... just given to get us hot-under-the-collar (again) on a Friday ? :)
still interesting article... strange to see (percentage wise) that the president doesnt get that much more than the ministers? maybe more other benefits? still a crap load of money

but wtf is with the speaker Baleka earning the same salary as pres? tough job?

a good article would be as to WHY such HUGE salaries are justified? not even counting the cars, etc...
we're not even talking incredibly decorated/experienced/degreed/qualified persons here.

all this in an economy like ours :D

in public sector a person needs to put in quite a bit of work, or be real good to justify that.
