After former president Jacob Zuma had to vacate his office as leader of SA, the new leader and his deputy moved into their presidential homes.
These homes were refurbished and repaired to fit the new occupants. The homes of President Ramaphosa and Deputy President David Mabuza were given makeovers that cost taxpayers more than R7 million in total.
President Ramaphosa's Mahlamba Ndlopfu home in Pretoria and David Mabuza's Oliver Tambo House were both given repairs to their security systems. Faulty electricity was also fixed.
Thulas Nxesi, public works Minister, revealed this information after questions from the EFF.
IOL News reports that in total, the repairs were R 7 345 415, according to Nxesi's statement.
Concerns were raised about the repairs made at the official residences of Ramaphosa and Mabuza.
Some of the noted repairs included that of pipes, gutters, paintwork that had to be done and a leaking roof that needed mending.
