Some South African politicians have been accused of abusing their offices but a good number of them walk away with it without even being questioned or challenged.

Disgraced Minister Faith Muthambi treated her family and friends to a luxury junket at huge expense to the taxpayer just two months after being moved to a new ministry.

Azwihangwisi Faith Muthambi is the 9th Minister of Communications of the Republic of South Africa. Muthambi had a long political career before being named the new communications minister.

The Minister allegedly flew 30 members of her family and friends to Cape Town for her budget speech in parliament in May.

The minister was shunted to the public service and administration portfolio in March after President Jacob Zuma could no longer ignore the public outrage at her dismal management of the communications ministry.

Just four months into her new job‚ Zuma’s trusted ally is in the spotlight again‚ the Sunday Times reported.
