EFF condemns the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture for wasteful expenditure on R22 million monument flag
11 May 2022
The EFF condemns the gross and wasteful intended expenditure by the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, which has announced that it will spend R22 million to install a "monument flag".
In a clear exhibition of a Department that does not know what to do with its budget, Nathi Mthethwa and his colleagues have resolved to create a large scale project out of placing a stick into the ground and attaching a flag to it.
This is a useless, fruitless and misguided use of the taxpayers money, that must be rejected by all logical and rational people.
The explanation for this patently stupid waste of money, is that it will be a symbol of unity and national pride. The Department purports that this mounting of a flag, will inspire social cohesion.
