Economic Freedom Fighters has condemned the purchasing of three VVIP jets for President Jacob Zuma, ministers and deputy ministers. Inkwazi, the presidential jet will be supplemented by three new VIP jets at a cost of R2-billion.

EFF’s National Spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said this money could have been invested in higher education tuition fees.

He added that this is yet another expenditure that demonstrates governments disregard for public resources.

“We think this is in fundamental contradictions with the budget statement as given by the Minister of Finance that our country faces a lot of fiscal challenges such that he delivered those problems and resolve them so raising personally income tax, value tax and generally taxes which are going to be carried by ordinary South Africans.

And also made a commitment on cutting government spending on unnecessary things, only to find out that this money that is being collected is going to buy President Zuma a lavish and luxurious jet.”   Ndlozi said.
