Media24 Investigations put the question to
President Jacob Zuma, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, the 33 national Cabinet ministers, their deputies, 9 education MECs and 400 MPs asking them if they sent their children to private or public schools.
The only Cabinet minister who responded was Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, who revealed that her child went to a private school, reports News24.com.
The Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) advised ministers and deputy ministers not to respond.
“It is not a matter of public interest,” said the GCIS’s acting chief executive, Phumla Williams, when asked why they had advised ministers against responding.
So politicians steal your hard earned income through taxation, promising to invest it in public schooling infrastructure, while really just funneling the money into trust funds and crony businesses, while still drawing a fat salary check and sending their own kids to private schools.
