Should have let him walk. So over these fucking Zuma's😡🤬 Correction ' the Ramaphosa government spent... Did he send himself to prison? Is he the one who is gonna pay for that? Okay. This is absolutely unnecessary, it's not even news. Without taking any side, are you going to report each and every move of Ramaphosa when he's a former president?

Just wasted my data reading this nonsense, why is an expenditure of 9k news , for a whole former president? Fire that intern journalist and the editor who approved this nonsense So what? Even if they told us to go and fetch him we were going to do that without complaining. Who told the state to use so many car? He is not a danger to us, we are not a danger to him too
Wasn’t he arrested? Who must transport prisoners? Must they transport them? Must the country move to lockdown level 5 because of that It's gvt's transparency & accountability that incites me in this whole story not the actual figures perse.

We dont care about 9 000 We Wana know about the 500bn ! what was he supposed to do? take himself to and fro? 😕 For me they could have even spent a million as long he went to jail. 🚮 Ah what must we do gwaswana it was gonna end up in another politicians pocket Even if it was 9 billion I won't mind,this man has screwed us while laughing at is for long
President Zuma wasn't just an ordinary prisoner like they made you to believe. R9000? This useless man is costing us a lot of money. Why can't Zulu people loot him? So?
They wasted 10million deploying police unnecessarily to capture an 80yr old man. The deployment of so many policemen, vehicles and helicopters was wasteful expenditure as they could have just used to VIP protection policemen to hand him over, even though he was jailed for nothing No news here
