The CEO of SALGA, the South African Local Government Association, is reported in the press as receiving an annual salary of over R 3.5 millon. His basic salary alone sees him earning more than the President of South Arica (R 2.6 million). This is, of course, in the face of government belt-tightening and the shambolic condition of most of the municipalities that fall under Xolile George's responsibility. Just another connected comrade in protected employment, riding roughshod over the poor and needy in this country.
I am a freelance cartoonist from South Africa. I draw daily editorial cartoons for our local daily newspaper as well as various other stuff.
In my free time I create collage, collect ephemera and all sorts of interesting but valueless stuff and am a somewhat erratic mail artist.
