Stop paying tribal leaders out of South African taxes

05 March 2014, 10:48

Stop paying tribal leaders out of South African taxes

Last year it was reported that 6,150 traditional leaders (including 10 kings) were paid more than a sum total of R650 Million - PLUS other allowances and benefits paid at the discretion of the individual Provinces directly.

Millions of South Africans who have no affiliation whatsoever to these tribal leaders are paying huge sums of money from the their tax contributions so that these Kings and Tribal leaders can live in the lap of luxury while other people die in South Africa’s every day from malnutrition - It’s a disgrace. 

If the King’s subjects wish to pay for their King to live with a silver spoon in his mouth - then send around a collection plate to the Kings followers – don’t expect hard working South Africans to pay from their hard earned tax contributions that are meant to build a better South Africa.

Stop this runaway ANC train on May 7th before it is too late
