Cape Town - The former president, Thabo Mbeki, will continue to have all the payments, salaries and other packages that he was receiving the day before he left office, for the rest of his life.
A resolution passed by the National Assembly on Friday also allows the former president to have annual pay increases based on those recommended by the Remuneration Commission.
He will also have his medical insurance fully paid.
The resolution grants 50% of his package to his widow if he should die.
Is this normal?
