Reports yesterday reveal that Minister of
women, children and people with disabilities, Lulu Xingwana, spent 2.1 million
redecorating her department’s head office with designer furniture.
DA shadow minister of women, children and
people with disabilities Helen Lamoela
said that nearly half of the amount was spent on her own office and the
DA plans to call on the Auditor general to investigate this latest report of
extravagant and wasteful expenditure by the department under Minister
Lamoela said that as the DA they feel that
protection of women, children and people with disabilities should be priority.
Lamoela adds that the protection of this
group is so low on her list and designer furniture has taken that space.
Lamoela emphasis that minister Xingwana is
very well known for her over seas trips, now designer furniture and services of
private lawyers to assist in axing members of staff.
