But I thought the State have a cash-flow problem?

Obviously not.
Tax payer will have to fit the bill. Watching this space tax payer will have to pay more
.Example rates and taxes will increase. Sustainability the way we going with do many ministers unsuitability. Money should go towards education not increasing salaries.
If they unhappy they should look for employment elsewhere which I doubt they will receive the same salary.


How many ministers do we have again.

Wonder what Nene's going to say now his austerity plan is out the window?

Was a bit of a LOL anyway when he announced government spending cutbacks, and he unfortunately doesn't strike as ballsey enough to remind numbawan of the promises he made us.

And everyone overlooks the ministerial handbook which probably doubles anyone's income in perks:

Ministers and deputy ministers are allowed to purchase one car for official use in Pretoria as well as one in Cape Town. The value of each vehicle cannot be more than 70% of their salary. At the current salary determinations, a minister could therefore buy two cars to the value of R1.5-million each.

Cabinet members can live free of charge in one stated-owned residence in the capital of their choice. If they want to move into a second state-owned house for official purposes they must pay a “market-related” rent. There is even a formula provided in the handbook to calculate this: (salary) x 1% divided by 12. So R2 106 607 a minister x 1% (21 066) / 12 = R1 756 a month, a sum for which an ordinary South African can rent a backyard flat in Athlone (but you “need 2 make ur own kitchen”) or, for R100 more, share a house in Pretoria West.

Cabinet members and their spouses may book first-class tickets for official international journeys. They are also both entitled to 30 single business-class flights a year within South Africa. Dependent children get six single economy-class flights a year. Rates for the Pretoria-Cape Town route range from R15 465 to R25 545 one way. When travelling on official business, Cabinet members, their spouses and dependent children can choose any hotel to stay in.

According to the ministerial handbook, a Cabinet member’s department can pay for all “reasonable” out-of-pocket expenses (“including gratuities and reading material, but excluding alcoholic beverages not consumed with a meal”) connected with the subsistence of the members, their spouses and family members who need to accompany them when travelling. Slips only need to be supplied “if at all possible”.

for sure. public 'servants' on this level are having it real cushy compared to the people they (supposed to) serve

generally somebody else's salary is none of my business, so even if it seems outragous, its none of my beezwax, agreement with employer/employee... if the employer is happy to pay, its his problem, but in this case WE are the sods who have to give increasing parts of our salaries, increasing the load on ourselves, so these ***** can enjoy our fruits.
generally, if your worker performs badly, you can do something about his pay, or even kick him out, but with these people we cant seem to do anything about it, and their performance is severely under par.
problem is the sheep who keep voting for them and this situation, are too stupid to realise what they are doing to us taxpayers

they won't even consider taking a slightly lesser car, to at least show sympathy for the sods who have to pay... take as much as you can is the rule of thumb.

French Revolution all over again?
now there is a cause we can rally together on... real public moral booster!
while seeing these heads roll, literally should be quite a show, and give prospective incumbents something to ponder about, i would be happy just to see useless public servants kicked out on their ass... and not with "paid suspension" like we often see.

Zuma is cheap at the price, at $ parity he barely costs us the price of a good booze up at any decent london banksters club.
Besides, he's much more phun to hang with than that muchosoft 10 preview hologram, pretzel O'bama, or that klutz demo, David "Cameron".

Does it list firepool under taxable benefits though?

Oh snap... The SAPS investigation dude just got suspended under dubious circumstances. Curious coincidence...
