Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Dr Zweli Mkhize, has just approved salary increases for all municipal managers and those that report directly to them,of up to R200 000 per month. I repeat, R200 000 per month. Some officials will earn between R2 million and
R4 million per year. Wow!?
No wonder Cape Town’s Dan Plato’s latest recruit is a qualified medical doctor.
Luthando Tyhalibongo of the City of Cape Town, states that government salaries are “in accordance with the law’.
One wonders if this same “ Law” measures if these people deliver work relative to their salaries given the service delivery issues around the country. So, property owners, brace yourselves to foot those mind-boggling salary increases.
