The ANC Treasury General, Paul Mashatile, was apparently unaware that an invoice was made for the debt to be paid.
It was apparently only when the invoice, with an amount of R102 million, was shown to him, that the sparks flew.
An investigation has now been ordered following the invoice issued for the delivery of 35,000 election posters that were apparently not approved by the party.
Mashatile was apparently unaware of the deal until the invoice was brought to his eyes, and an investigation is now underway as to who is responsible for the mess.
However, it appears that the ANC did receive and use the posters, and will thereby also be responsible for paying the bill.
