ANC rejects calls for investigation into Mlambo-Nguka's UAE trip

The ANC has quashed a resolution put to parliament’s standing committee on public accounts calling for the auditor general to investigate Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka’s controversial holiday in the United Arab Emirates. Leader of the ANC’s caucus on Scopa, Vincent Smith, said his party would not accept the proposal by the Democratic Alliance. Smith said the auditor general would investigate directives regarding the trip in the normal course of his work. The DA had wanted the AG to report within three weeks on whether there was wasteful expenditure on the trip which they say cost at least 700-thousand rands of taxpayers' money.
