Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has today confirmed that her office will be investigating KwaZulu Natal Health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo.

It is alleged that Dhlomo used Durban’s only medial helicopter to make a 750 km round-trip to a funeral in Hlabisa in November.

 Democratic Alliance KZN Leader Sizwe Mchunu said any number of medical emergencies requiring the use of the medical helicopter could have occurred in the Ethekwini metro.

Mchunu said that the department has submitted a document of ethics violation by KZN health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo and that is therefore a confirmation that the department has since received from the public protector.

Mcunu adds that the department puts their trust that in the next 30 days they will receive a response, min terms of her findings within the executive ethics guideline.
