Limpopo’s top officials must undergo lifestyle audit- DA



Limpopo Premier Stan Mathabatha and his executive have been summoned by the Democratic Alliance (DA) to undergo lifestyle audits.

This request comes after the VBS Mutual Bank scandal.

DA spokesperson, Risham Maharaj said the lifestyle audit is to check if the officials’ lifestyle were in line with their income.

“The province is still reeling in the aftermath of the VBS Mutual Bank scandal.”

“There are now allegations that the premier’s foster brother is a beneficiary of a R3.2 billion mining deal after the reshuffle of the Limpopo Economic Development Agency (Leda) board,” said Maharaj.

However, Mathabatha’s spokesperson, Kenny Mathivha, has come out to say the premier did not understand what a foster brother was.

“We don’t know what a foster brother is. The premier and members of the executive declare all their assets to parliament and legislature ethics committee and are sworn to those ideals,” he said.

“The Leda board, Corridor Mining Resources board and their subsidiary companies have nothing to do with the premier because he is not a member.”
