South Africans were left baffled after news broke that the government splashed more than half a million rand on three entertainment areas for ministers.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier, Scopa wanted to know why SA spent R500k on three braai areas for ministers, and the news shook the country.
So, in true SA style, they took to social media to share their views on the blatant mismanagement of tax money.
In order to give South Africans a voice, Briefly.co.za decided to gather 10 of the most explosive reactions to the ministers' super expensive braai areas.
