Communications Minister Faith Muthambi allegedly spent over half a million on a nine-day trip to a luxury goods show and folk art festival in America.

Muthambi visited the Atlanta Lifestyle Hub Show and the Santa on July 8th.

It is alleged that Muthambi was accompanied by her bodyguard as well as her chief of staff and an Assistant Director.

The South African Lifestyle Hub in Atlanta is a permanent showcase of high end products for sale to the American market.

 DA MP Gavin Davis said this event have little or nothing to do with the Minister’s Communications mandate and the public deserves to know how she can justify this nine-day trip.
