How much is enough? With the endless string of scandals tainting South Africa since 1994, we hope this wedding will highlight the lack of transparency when it comes to money and politics in this country and the corruption that ensues as a result.

People around the world are tired of the unholy alliance between State and Business. The United States’ 2012 presidential election was the most expensive in history, totaling 6.3 BILLION dollars. President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney’s campaigns spent a combined $2.6 million every DAY this past election cycle. That does not seem like the best use of money for a country that is currently in the midst of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression.

In developing countries like South Africa, parties spend enormous sums of unnecessary money with no rules to regulate expenditure. The total cost? Unknown. Much of this money comes from corporations and wealthy individuals, which often, but not always, carries a political debt. IMG_1600
