Who rates highest?

18 May 2013, 17:51

So a Gupta-owned property in Saxonwold, of over 4000m² , which was previously valued at R16.8 million, has been re-valued at R490 000, making the rates payable now in the region of R150 as opposed to the previous amount of R7800.

Funny thing that, even after all the renovations, helipad, cricket pitch and swimming pool, and with no other property in the area valued at less than a paltry R5 million. I wonder if dry rot or woodworm has suddenly been discovered? Or should that be general rot and the stink of  corruption?

How is it possible that a property clearly worth a lot more has been valued at less than a one-bedroom flat? Could it possibly be a huge mistake or a typing error????!!!!

For the average South African, once again, this is literally another slap in the face and a clear indication of the ‘some are more equal than others’ policy which has quite obviously become the way of government 20 years into our ‘democracy'.
