    Broadband Infraco boost

    State-owned Broadband Infraco, which has operated under its new name for the last eight months, posted an operating profit of R18.7 million for 2007/08 but would have reported a R35.6 million operating loss if interest income of R61.4 million was not included, chairman Andrew Mthembu and acting chief executive David Smith have reported to parliament.

    thats a novel idea. put your money in a high interest bearing account and make money that way. brilliant. a government co pany looking to make as large a profit as possible. no spending - why would they *cringe*

    Wait.. why the hell are Infraco posting profits etc etc....

    Being a parastatal they should be plowing the profits back into the business to improve the infrastructure.... and interest income?... We as a public need to be demanding an explanation of why that money is not being utilised to deploy infrastructure.

    So I guess now that the Directors will get hefty bonuses just because they put the money in the bank and earned interest.

    There are many reasons why they would park the money somewhere for a bit. e.g. They get the money now but only need to pay the contractor later when the work is done.
