R48M for Freestate Government Website

Wow!  Will someone please pay the developers of this (DDF) website R48 Million.  Pleeeas.

In a more serious vein, the Freestate government paid R48 Million for their website.  We didn’t know web-site development was quite so lucrative, but perhaps that only works when government is the client and the tender process is not followed.

Admittedly the web-site is a bit more sophisticated than the DDF web-site but is that difference worth an additional R48 Million?  We don’t think so.  But even if it was worth R48 Million what legislature could possibly justify that sort of expenditure?  Just adds to the list of ANC extravagances documented elsewhere in this site. 

Needless to say, a Direct Democracy Forum administration would not permit that sort of expenditure in any provincial government web site.

The buck stops at the ballot box.
