Who’s financing political parties in South Africa
It looks like South Africans are nowhere near finding out who’s financing political parties.
The political party funding bill has been lying idle for six months.
The IEC says the unit that’s meant to implement the legislation will only be operational from April.
This means you are only likely to find out AFTER voting in the May elections, who is financing your political party of choice.
Another hurdle is that President Cyril Ramaphosa is yet to sign the bill into law.
