The ministers have defended the expenditure, saying it was not unlawful and in line with the ministerial handbook.
Rip that bloody book up. Seems like it is simply an excuse to waste tax-payer's money.

Eish and poor idiots will still vote and support
Yes well... so stupid as to believe the promises, or to vote ANC out of principle because "they liberated us"
African logic never fails to astonish

The biggest expenditure at R670,000 was on Malusi Gigaba’s wife when she accompanied him to New York and several Asian countries.

I think they need to replace Nene again ASAP. He clearly did not learn from the first replacement.

These people need to get beyond the pre-teen level argument that "technically it's allowed so no problem". As a responsible adult human in a position of power, your own common sense and moral compass should preclude wasting taxpayer money for this kind of thing; don't do it just because a handbook allows a stupidly high allowance for it. Wake up and do your jobs, and maybe the country can experience actual upliftment.

What role did their wives and kids play on the trip? If you have no role, you stay home.

At least one of those two Ministers' wives have a public Instagram account and every single day she posts selfies, flaunting her clothing, accessories, foreign travel, fancy restaurants, etc.

At a minimum these Ministers should be taxed for the benefits which extend beyond themselves. If you bring the wife and she add R100k to the trip, then you should get taxed for that R100k as a benefit.

There is zero ****ing reason why you should get to take the wife and kids on a business trip for free.
