Letter: ANC election expenses

Click to follow
Sir: I have just read the article 'Mandela needs dollars 43m for ANC election campaign' (6 July). The sentence 'Much of the money would have to come from abroad' struck me in particular.

Why is it all right for Nelson MaEndela to seek foreign money for the ANC's election expenses, butTHER write error an unwarranted intrusion in the democratic process when the Government of this country is found to have done it? Wouldn't it leave the ANC equally open to criticism and contributors accused of having had an undue influence on any election result?

Yours faithfully,

JUDITH M. MOTT
