The Democratic Alliance plans to ask every Cabinet minister whether he or she had spend money on a private jet.
This follows the revelation that the Police Service had purchased a Cessna Citation Sovereign private business jet.
The DA’s Dianne Kohler Barnard says the jet, costing 150-million-Rands, will be used to transport Cabinet ministers and senior officials.
Kohler Barnard calls the purchase a disgraceful waste of public money. She wants to know whether any other department had made such a purchase.
