REG­GIE Cele, spokesper­son for the Fed­er­a­tion for Rad­i­cal Eco­nomic Trans­for­ma­tion, said hav­ing an ex­clu­sive auc­tion helped to equip the poor, who were able to bid.

“Al­most ev­ery­one who was at the auc­tion went home with some­thing, un­like in other auc­tions where one per­son or group takes more than 10 (cars). It’s an open se­cret that wellestab­lished car deal­ers buy these cars in bulk and fix them.

“This de­nies poor peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to own just one car. But by hav­ing such an auc­tion it gives ev­ery­one a fair chance,” Cele said.
