Use tax money to deliver, not destroy: iLIVE

I keep reading in newspapers, hearing on radio and seeing on television news that taxpayers must pay more for health care, education, usable roads, stormwater drains cleared and so on.

Taxes are meant to cover all these things. The population is entitled to receive value for money.

Billions have been spent on consultants, travel, whisky and cigars, possibly even bunkers at Nkandla. Enough.

Use our tax money for its intended purposes.

Taxpayers cannot be expected to pay for state mismanagement
