The Democratic Alliance has called on National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega to explain the expenditure of R40 million to be used on a music bash.

This follows a report which alleged that the money will be spent on a competition for the police’s leading music groups and choirs.

DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler Barnard said this is the latest example of frivolous spending of a budget that should be used for the fight against crime. Barnard says “this is the latest example of frivolous spending of a budget that should be used to fight crime.

Bernard added that, earlier this year the National Police commissioner used an access of twenty-million rand to hire energy consultants who are in fact has communication paid for by the tax payer.

I therefore submit these parliamentary questions to seek clarity of the nature of this event or its purposes and if this expenditure is fruitless, Bernard added.
