DA Limpopo challenges Premier Mathabatha and executive to independent lifestyle audit

SEKHUKHUNE – The Democratic Alliance in Limpopo has put a challenge to Premier Chupu Mathabatha and his executive to undergo lifestyle audits that are conducted by a qualified and independent service provider.

According to the DA, a lifestyle audit of executive office-bearers determines whether their families’ lifestyle is in line with their known income stream.

The party says the audits will include credit searches on the applicant and their immediate family members, criminal record searches, verification of fixed and movable assets and conducting an asset search in the case of assessing donations, gifts and potential links to executive responsibilities.

Risham Maharaj, DA Limpopo Spokesperson on the Premier’s office, said Limpopo province was still reeling in the aftermath of the VBS scandal which implicated high-ranking government officials and politicians.

“The DA is further concerned that the relaxed procurement regulations during the Covid-19 pandemic have deepened the quagmire of corruption in the province.

R480 million has been spent on PPE and yet there are still reports from the public sector that they have not received adequate PPE supplies, whilst allegations are rife against the MEC for Health, Dr Phophi Ramathuba, for awarding R850 000 contract to Rebantle Trading & Projects, who has links to the Deputy Minister in the Presidency, Thembi Siweya,” said Maharaj.

Maharaj added that it was time for Premier Mathabatha to change from providing mere lip service to definitive action against corruption which is suffocating any prosperity in the province.

“Premier Mathabatha must take the people of Limpopo into his confidence and commit to lifestyle audits on his executive and investigate any irregularities uncovered during the process,” said Maharaj.
