Prime Minister Mondli Gungubele says the cabinet welcomes the decision by Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture Nathi Mtetwa to reconsider the flagpole project.

After public outrage, Mtetwa announced that his department would evaluate the decision to spend 22 million rupees on the giant South African flag and consider the process as a whole.

Gungubele says that when the Cabinet approved the project, there was no cost determination.

He says: “The Cabinet has not looked at the amount, and usually it would not be in the Cabinet preview to deal with it, so that the Cabinet was proposed differently in this regard. Now that the situation has developed, review the Minister, whatever her feedback, I believe he can take it to the Cabinet and have it discussed. Everything I say, the government appreciates the minister’s review, especially in response to people’s concerns about the value of the flag. “
