Public Protector, Busiswe Mkhwebane, recommended to Jacob Zuma that the Special Investigation Unit should investigate the R300 million wasted in the Eastern Cape at memorial services for Nelson Mandela, head of state and sentenced terrorist.

Money earmarked for infrastructure and social development was used to buy T-shirts and to pay a catering company for the “services.”

T-shirts were purchased at R350 from suppliers who are nowhere on the province’s database, and the shirts were never received.

This is the first critical report by the current Public Protector after she did not want to accept her predecessor’s reports of state capture.
