South Africans Not Happy With Government Spending

Money

According to a survey conducted by research company TNS, most South African’s living in cities feel that the government is not spending taxpayers’ money well.

TNS’s spokesman, Neil Higgs, said in a statement, “The proportion of people in South Africa’s eight major metro areas who feel that the government is not spending taxpayers’ money well is 47%.”

Higgs added that about a third of people feel that the money is being spent well and about a fifth simply gave an “I don’t know” response.

Geography also seems to have an effect on the residents’ responses. The poorest perceptions were recorded in Port Elizabeth, the Vaal Triangle/South Rand and Cape Town; and the best were recorded in East London, Durban and Bloemfontein.

The survey was conducted on approximately 2,000 metropolitan residents in the eight major metro areas of the country.
