eThekwini Municipality slams those opposed to R20m statues as being against black unity
Howard Marx-Hughes R20-million .... the equivelent of the annual salary of 3 or maybe 4 top execs in the municipality. At least you can see where the money is being spent .... millions spent on private homes, holidays disguised as business... family... motor cars, etc

R20-million is too much money to spend on bronze statues. The eThekwini Municipality has serious socio-economic issues that need to be solved. Money could have been spent on social upliftment projects, repairing crumbling infrastructure, housing, road maintenance, equipping hospitals, clinics, schools, giving bursaries to disadvantaged and deserving students and so on. I’m not against the statues, but the money spent doesn’t tally. Using emotional blackmail to silence any criticism also reeks of something smelly behind the scenes.

Leon J Hargreaves, true. Worse there are lots of qualified people sitting at home without jobs..
Don’t forget about load-shedding people, that is still a thing
Statues and black unity? Is this maths, science or history? Somebody help me! I have tried addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, but statues and black unity give me no answer!
Wonder if starving children will have a stomach for the statues that are taking food out of their mouths?
Just wonder if these statues are going to put food on the poor people’s plates. Did anyone do some calculations to see how many houses you can build for that amount?
