R60k? That's R5k a month. You get unlimited call contracts for under R1k.
This I don't mind really because like any business you work for you get some perks or discounts from that business.Private use? As in they can just fly around whenever they like for non-government business? This should be 0 tickets per year. They earn a salary, let them use that to buy their own tickets for private travel.
Relative to their salary and the type of housing and lifestyle it allows not really.Isn't R5k a bit much for electricity and water? It does not sound like they are being very environmentally (or Eskom) friendly if they are paying that much for just electricity and water (ie. not rates and taxes).
That doesn't seem to include renting, so the loophole is to permanently rent a nice vehicle. I seem to remember someone from government recently did the whole rent thing because they faked their own vehicle as being broken?Interesting moves...
There will be much unhappiness at the R700k limit. It means borderline that a 3 series is as posh as they can get now..
No more big boy cars.
They can't fit their fat asses in economy class seats for more than 2 hours."Members and their partners must travel in economy class for all official domestic travel as well as international travel where the travel time is less than two hours"
Not even US Government allows business class unless exceptional circumstances.
What they should implement is a "jump seat" arrangement like they do with pilots.Free in the sense that the taxpayer gets to pick up the tab.
