    ANC mayor appeals to business for help??? let me understand this correctly. ANC want to force BEE on my business, expect me to have a black partner to succeed, threaten to take it away without compensation ....and now ASK ME FOR HELP....are you INSANE!

      Quite right Comrade. I sympathise with the families, but us businesses gave at the office already. Pity the Mayors already blew our Tax Contributions on flash cars.

    Whats the bet its 100 RDP houses built to "specification" at premium cost by a connected cadre with a Diploma in Taxi Driving.

      @PaasHaas If it was a connected cadre, the houses probably never existed. This may be a elaborate scheme to get business to make up the shortfall. 100 is a nice round number.
