Former sports minister and current ANC head of elections Fikile Mbalula has been granted time off in order to seek legal guidance following the Public Protector’s report on his infamous Dubai holiday.
Dakota Legoete, the acting ANC spokesperson, confirmed that Mbalula has been granted the leave while the former minister has been unreachable for contact since Wednesday.
The spokesperson revealed that the ANC would only address the findings during its national executive committee meeting in January.
Briefly.co.za recently reported that Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane revealed that former Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula’s R680 000 holiday in Dubai had been paid for by a sports supplier.
Eyewitness News had revealed in 2017 that Sedgars had funded the former minister’s family vacation. Mbalula had claimed that the funds had been a loan from the company but the public protector has since found this to be a false statement.
