The DA took to social media to share with South Africans the property of the ANC Chief Whip, which he reportedly bought with R7.2 million.
Mmusi Maimane's party has since demanded he pay the full amount back since they believe it was purchased with the help of companies and individuals who were benefiting from corruption in the health department, The Citizen reported.
"R7.2 Million on this?! What a waste! Today, we are outside Gauteng's own Nkandla, ANC Gauteng Chief Whip Brian Hlongwa's unoccupied & unfinished house. #HlongwaMustGo", Mmusi Maimane's party captioned the post on its official Twitter page.
