The DA has revealed that the ANC Mayor of Molemole wasted public money to bless himself with a luxury Mercedes Benz GLE 4×4 costing R1 million.

The party stated that the blessing was extended to the Molemole Speaker, Mpelege Moreroa who received another luxury 4×4 costing over R500,000.00.

“Collectively, the obscenely wasteful spending for these two ANC officials totals R1,5 million, which is money that will never make its way to the delivery of services for the people of Molemole.

“In a Municipality that spends most of its budget on salaries and only 27% on service delivery, this waste of R1,5 million on luxury cars for politicians is a disgrace.

“Most of these salaries go to ANC cadres. National Treasury requires Municipalities to spend upwards of 60% of their budgets on service delivery, but Molemole falls enormously short of this,” DA wailed.
