Flip; with all the billions, I don't know when the money is going to runout. :mad:

We should arrange a tournament each year where the worst 30 municipalities have to compete in gladiatorial combat or singing or something. Winner gets a bailout, all the losers get erm, removed from the map.

A payment of R900,000 was made to the wrong supplier, and the municipality only managed to recover around R225,000 of that amount.
Sounds like a stand up supplier :thumbsup:

And mostly zero charges, no recovery, just fat cat ANCs having a jol.

Brits: Just before their woes started (or it may have been at the start) - they nominated themselves in a competition for the best run municipality ... :X3:

32 Billion, up from 24 billion the previous year.

Increase of 34% - I understand inflation and all that, but still.....34% more stupidity is spectacular. Viva.

Is corruption even addressable? It is sad how it became a 'business' culture like it is the norm.

I read the article and it is saddening. Just wait on the zero-budget abuse the government is about to release on the citizens.
