To reveal where his money is spent is absolutely a publicity stunt… but a clever one by COSATU’s Tony Ehrenreich because many of us, now that the question has been asked, would like to know Helen Zille’s and Patricia de Lille’s income and how they spend it.
And the question just became bigger after the DA screwed up, as reported by the Cape Argus, with:
When asked if the premier and mayor would follow suit, Zille’s spokesman Michael Mpofu said Ehrenreich was free to do as he pleases: ‘We will not be drawn into his cheap publicity stunt.’
More than this, is my wish for the ANC and the DA to show us where they get the majority of their funding from; which billionaires, which corporations, which countries… ??? We have to know exactly whose interests we’re being asked to vote for.
We have to get out of this small-minded, local political game. We have to stop jumping through senseless, endless hoops of finger pointing.
We will never get to the truth by following the thread of, for example, racism and reverse racism. To get to the truth, as it has almost always been since it was created, we have to follow the money. Only then, will we know what’s really happening in South Africa. I’m happy for the Western Cape, my home province, to set the example.
In the immortal words of Cuban Gooding Jnr, “Show me the money.”
In South Africanism, “SHOW US THE MONEY, HELEN.”
