Instead of buying a giant flag, R22 million can be used to boost the struggling arts and sports sector

Note to Editors: Please find an attached soundbite by Tsepo Mhlongo MP
The Department of Sports, Arts and Culture is reportedly on a mission to install 100-meter giant flag to the tune of R 22 million. This is the clearest indication yet that Minister Nathi Mthethwa is out of touch with the needs of South Africans.
According to Minister Mthethwa’s reasoning, the installing of this massive flag will somehow play a role in nation building and social cohesion.
While the DA is wholly supportive of this noble cause, we reject it being misused to excuse wasting taxpayer’s money.
