The Saga in numbers

lR6million - the amount spent by Cope during its two-day national convention in November 2008.

lR1million - the amount still owed to the Sandton Convention Centre. A sponsor who promised to foot the bill changed his mind.

l550000 - the number of Cope's claimed paid-up members.

lR16,5million - the amount that could be injected into Cope's coffers from membership fees but forms are gathering dust at head office.

lR3million - the amount authorised by party president Mosiuoa Lekota's "friend" in a controversial deal for election T-shirts.
