- Briefly.co.za reported on the suspicious news that ANC provincial chairman, Oscar Mabuyane, enjoyed home renovations using R1 million worth of municipality funds
- Angry South Africans have now had their say on the matter as the news went viral
- Reports also indicated that the invoice in question was fraudulently created to indicate that the funds were being used for a road construction project
Briefly.co.za reported on the allegation that funds to the tune of R1 million were siphoned from an Eastern Cape municipality and used to renovate the home of an ANC politician.
ANC provincial chairman and premier designate, Oscar Mabuyane, has been implicated in the damning report.
The report also alleges that an invoice was fraudulently created as a cover for the corrupt plan.
It is thought that the invoice falsely indicated hiring of facilities for a road construction project, but that the funds were used to beautify Mabuyane’s home.
Briefly.co.za shared the news on Monday and hundreds of angry South Africans reacted via Facebook.
Steve Pretorius asked, “Will the ANC ever be pushed to apologize for the LOOTING of OUR country?”
Zenzo Mashaba said, “You voted for them so deal with them.”
Siyabonga Howard Mthimunye added, “Keep on voting for them and they will keep on chowing the money.”
Ncamisile Ramza commented, “I would say this again South Africans has no leadership whether it is Ramaphosa or anyone as long we put them in power we not gonna get anywhere, they don't even listen to what we need as people of South Africa and implement it. They do as they please.”
Sibusiso Radebe said, “Corruption is a culture at anc. Recently it was R10m that was supposed to be given to Gift of Givers in the same province.”
Briefly.co.za noted that one comment in particular seemed to sum up the sentiments.
Solomon Williams said, “That's how we do things, fix your house, by a car be happy you are a deserving councillor, deprived of all these luxuries in your life when the moment presents itself, use it, but don't abuse it.
“They will only grill you, you'll survive, then post you to another important job where you hit them over the head again. Shame you are suffering from apartheid delinquency.”
