Vend­ing in­flu­ence in Venda

Sunday Times - - Opinion -

Florence Radzi­lani — you don’t know her, and nei­ther did Hog­a­rth un­til she sur­faced in the re­port on that bank in Venda. She’s the deputy chair of the ANC in Lim­popo and dou­bles as the mayor of the Vhembe dis­trict mu­nic­i­pal­ity. See where we are go­ing with this?

It turns out Radzi­lani likes Christ­mas quite a lot. Ac­cord­ing to ad­vo­cate Terry Mo­tau’s re­port, she asked for a “Christ­mas” in re­turn for not with­draw­ing the R300m the mu­nic­i­pal­ity had in­vested. “We gave her 300k and she cried [com­plained] and said we gave ju­niors R1.5m and we give her 300k,” read a What­sApp from a fel­low looter.

The mayor de­serves a hol­i­day, maybe some­where where the dress code is strictly orange.
