Melanie Verwoerd writes that she loves the South African flag, but spending R22 million to erect a 100 metre high flag in Freedom Park in Pretoria, when people are struggling with rising costs of living, just reflects a government that is tone deaf.
Last week, I read an article that said the government plans to spend R22 million to erect a 100 metre high flag in Freedom Park in Pretoria. I first thought it had to be fake news. Turns out it wasn't. That's right, folks, the Department of Arts and Culture is planning to spend 22 MILLION RAND on a flag.
Excuse me when I say: "WTF!!!"
