The Solution to Nkandla

26 November 2012, 14:27

The solution to Nkandla

The Minister of Finance, Mr Gordhan, you have been very silent about illegal upgrades to Mr Zuma’s compound using taxpayers funds.  There are really only two solutions to resolve this mess.  Mr Zuma was only entitled to R100 000 of taxpayers for the security upgrade to his compound.  For the record, Mr Maharaj, I am black, and there is no racist undertone to my usage of the word compound and in any case, Public Works calls the place a compound, hence my choice of word.

The first solution is as follows:

1.       The Minister of Public Works and Mr Zuma must resign and be charged for illegal expenditure of taxpayers funds.  We know the man from Nkandla has no morals and he believes that he is entitled to these funds, hence he will not resign which brings us to the next solution.

2.       Mr Zuma, Mr Nxesi and everybody else who approved the illegal expenditure must repay the funds including auctioning the house. However, we know that suppliers over invoiced and as such the funds will not be recoverable.  This brings me to the last solution.

3.       Mr. Zuma earns around R2 million and the expenditure is estimated at R248 million.  This is 124 times what he earns.  Since the State expenditure on this compound is illegal, the only logical solution is that each taxpayer must be granted 124 times their annual salary as a tax free deduction for however how long it takes.  For instance, if you earn R1 million per annum, you currently pay around R350 000 as income tax and you do not have to pay tax until you have recouped R124 million from the State.  This is equality.

Of course the country will be bankrupt and State looting of the public purse by government cronies will stop, then there will be an uprising and possibly a change of government.  But that is the ANC government’s fault.  Mr Vavi said there are no consequences under the current ANC leadership.  This will be the consequence.
