Tax money used to pay for DStv subscriptions of local government officials

The North West Provincial Legislature’ Standing Committee on Provincial Public Accounts (SCOPA) wants answers from the Madibeng Local Municipality about irregular expenditure.

Success Marota, an executive at the Auditor-General’s North West branch, said the municipality acquired the fourth consecutive disclaimer audit opinion due to lack of sufficient appropriate audit evidence.

Marota said there are no consequences for financial misconduct and transgressions in the municipality despite sufficient evidence of wrongdoing.

How dare SCOPA say things like this? If the other municipalities and and government leaders may steal, why can't the Madibeng Local Municipality?

It's apartheid's fault!

We are not taking into consideration that it is not an easy task to get to the top, you have to walk over a lot of heads and survive, so they deserve to feast once you reach that position of power!

This, just like the Eastern Cape municipalities that are falling apart, is squarely the result of the ANC led national governments indifference towards corruption and inability to keep up with their own thieving comrades.

Pay your tax guys, or you might get named and shamed by SARS!

It's the right thing to do!
The majority don't give an FU as long as they get their grant (cum cum), when the grant stops then you'll only see change and by then it's too late.
It's all the same from the south to the north on this continent, locust mentality.

How can any other conclusion other than this ending in tears be possible?

My father was an Auditor for government in the old Transvaal. (He was proud of his job, as he was helping to build the country).
He told me (little known fact) that they had tried several times to make municipalities "autonomous".
The longest anyone of these lasted was 9 months, then they started stealing etc.

Whats new just the day, same old news just different and new day.

News reporting media reporting of the same old thing, its like looking up in the sky amd seing the clouds but not doing anything just empty space just like empty promises and lies, you have all these investigations going on state capture, corrupt municipalities corrupt officials why worry with the small fish when the sharks themselves need to be punished and named and shamed, its ok we only the public who get robbed and just accept what is handed out.
