DA wants details on Deputy Presidents semi-business trip
The Democratic Alliance has called on Deputy President Pumzile Mhlambo-Ngcuka to release the official programme of her recent visit to the United Arab Emirates. This comes after Mhlambo-Ncguka reacted to criticism of the trip by claiming it was part holiday and part official visit. Several opposition parties have slammed Mhlambo-Ngcuka’s visit to the UAE. They say it cost the taxpayer in the region of 700-thousand rands to transport the Deputy President and her family. Mhlambo-Ngcuka says she was in the country on a fact-finding mission, and the DA now wants her to give a full breakdown of official business conducted on the trip.
