And I bet most of those perks never get declared to Sars. Government employees should not get a vehicle more than R250k and it definitely should not be theirs. Personal travel should not be covered and expenses not related to their job definitely should not. Politicians, DA included, are effing up the country because they're always shielded from the consequences of their actions unlike the rest of us who have to pay not only for ourselves but for them as well.I sure wish I could find a job that gave me the same perks these crooks get.
I can not think of one single reason they should be allowed anything more than a basic salary and a cellphone allowance. Reduced benefits or not, they're basically still living for free.
The ministers, of all people, should be given the perspective of life that we all have to deal with in they economy they have so easily destroyed. It's a fools paradise.
