RAF’s Comrades sponsorshi­p a waste


IT WAS evident, once again, from your pictures and the television coverage that the Road Accident Fund was one of the sponsors of the Comrades Marathon.

Clearly, the pleas from the Treasury that government department­s stop wasteful expenditur­e fell on deaf ears.

The RAF is in the red by a substantia­l amount, yet it chooses to squander money on advertisin­g. Advertisin­g what?

Once again, I do not hold out any hope for action to be taken against the officials concerned.
