Public Protector clears Police Minister of hotel accommodation wrongdoing
29 September 2011
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has labelled Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa’s hotel accommodation expenditure as unreasonable.
This is after he stayed at two luxury hotels in Cape Town and Durban at a cost of 700-thousand-Rand.
However, speaking at the National Press Club in Pretoria, Madonsela added that there was no evidence to suggest that the Minister had influenced the accommodation arrangements.
She has recommended that the Public Service Department revise the Ministerial Handbook to set out clear standards on expenditure.
