South Africans are outraged by the government’s proposed R1 billion sponsorship of English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

This comes on the heels of the Daily Maverick’s explosive revelations.

The South African government, through its marketing agency SA Tourism, is preparing to sign a deal worth R910,997,814.75 to sponsor Harry Kane’s Tottenham Hotspur, according to the Daily Maverick.

“What the PowerPoint presentations reveal is that the South African government, through its marketing arm SA Tourism, is seriously considering a proposal to spend close to R1 billion to sponsor one of the world’s most elite soccer teams.


“Sources close to the matter told Daily Maverick that it was on the verge of being finalised, with Sisulu allegedly eager for the deal to be sealed before the impending Cabinet reshuffle by President Cyril Ramaphosa moves her out of the Tourism portfolio, as is expected.

“Sisulu did not respond to a direct question as to whether she was indeed personally championing the deal.”

South Africans, on the other hand, were unimpressed with the proposed sponsorship deal. They accused the government of having erroneous priorities and being motivated by vanity.

Many accused the government of being insincere in addressing the country’s social ills, pointing out that the R1 billion could be better spent empowering the South African economy. They claimed that the South African government is disconnected from reality.
