Commission to release Mmemezi report
The Gauteng legislature will listen to an independent report into Humphrey Mmemezi's misconduct.
JOHANNESBURG - An independent commission set up by the Gauteng legislature will report back on Friday on an investigation into Humphrey Mmemezi's alleged misconduct.
Mmemezi stepped down as Gauteng's Local Government and Housing MEC this week, after being accused of misusing his government vehicle and official credit card.
While he is no longer MEC he still remains a member of the provincial legislature, with a salary of over R800,000 per year.
The Democratic Alliance's Jack Bloom said the damning report to be released later should give more clarity on whether Mmemezi is fit to hold public office.
“The DA awaits the report with anticipation. We don’t think that the report should be the end of this story, we think there are other allegations that need to be probed further.”
Meanwhile, Mmemezi has defended himself saying he misunderstood the ministerial handbook.
He says he was under the impression he could use the official credit card provided he paid back the money.
He maintains he refunded the Gauteng government for all credit card expenses long before the matter became public.
