It has been revealed that the Deputy Minister of Public Service and Administration, Ayanda Dlodlo spent R1.5 million within 18 days on two cars.
The revelation was made by a reply to a DA parliamentary question. As exposed, Deputy Minister Dlodlo last year, spent the millions on two luxury Audis in 3 weeks.
The first car – an Audi A8 3.0 TDI Quatrro Tip-tronic – was purchased on the 2nd of June 2016 for R750,000.
The second, an Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI Tip-tronic was purchased for R735,700 on 20 June 2016.
Reacting to the revelation, the Democratic Alliance (DA) party agitated that it will not let the “shocking abuse of public money stand.”
Already, the party has demanded of Deputy Minister Dlodlo to return the cars and go for a more appropriate one.
“It is wasteful expenditure like this that has created the lost generation, the millions of young people that have given up on ever finding work because the ANC would rather spend money on fancy cars than on quality basic education and skills development for our young people,” DA stated.
