"My homestead was burned twice during violence. Secondly, criminals came, raped my wife during the time I was still the MEC." - JZ (not the rapper)
I recently read an article with the latest story you tried to weave into an excuse as to why you had to splurge R250M odd of TAXPAYERS hard earned cash in order to validate the above comment.
Seeing as you are paid by tax, which makes ME as a taxPAYER one of YOUR EMPLOYERS, I would like to know if I too can upgrade my home by adding unnecessary items such as a " Firepool ", kraal, chicken run, etc. for the benefit of my family in order to protect any harm from coming to them. The good Lord only knows how a Firepool will protect my daughter and wife from being assaulted in our home (maybe we can train the cattle in the kraal and chickens in the coop in the arts of ninjitsu), but I'm sure that as it will all be at the cost of all South African Taxpayers, they won't mind if I submit these claims as tax deductible expenditures in the coming financial year? Also, I'm rather certain that SARS won't mind if all the taxpayers in this country do the same as at least it will keep those that actually do real work and contribute toward the economy, safe in their beds at night so that they can put in the hours the next day to keep the lights on.
