    So what is worse stealing the money or not spending it?

    Guess both is as bad as the other, the money don't get used where it should. so its just an ethical thing.

    So Treasury decided to redirect the money before the DA could present their proposal on how to spend it?

    You would swear there was a national election coming up and the ANC needed more loot to pay for their election campaigns.

    you do come across as someone that tries to smear the da at every chance you get.

    the article you posted gives you the impression the da is at fault, while the full story in a different article makes it seem as if the goverment/(anc appointees) caused it.

    you can post what you like

    ANC stolen it.
    There's your problem. Stoners are like brain damaged sloths on Prozac. Short of using them as garden gnomes - they have no real function.

    I know very little about you but I've seen enough of your posts to recognise you as rather anti-DA.

    Being Anti DA is not an issue, but I am being accused of smearing the DA at every opportunity I get? I seem to recall posting good stories about the DA and even congratulating them on a job well done when its deserved. Posting a story as it is from the source is what we all do here, it does seem to me that the criticism is unfair in this instance, unless the only negative stories we have to post must be the one about the ANC?

    You will need to do better than that. How about a pie chart of the Rand value stolen by the ANC vs DA. You can pick the time line. One week/month/year/decade.
