By Katlego Suzan Phala (MPL), DA Limpopo Provincial Legislature:
The Democratic Alliance is concerned about the abuse of state vehicles by Transport Department officials in Limpopo. A traffic control vehicle was spotted delivering furniture during lunch time last week. Click here to see the video.
The vehicle in question was seen driving along the R81 loading beds and a fridge click here. This is unacceptable and needs to be condemned in the harshest way possible.
The province currently seems to have very few marked traffic control vehicles hence traffic officers are driving departmental vehicles. Some vehicles do not even have traffic lights for traffic control and operations.
The DA will write to the chairperson of the transport and safety portfolio committee to summon MEC Mapula Phokwana-Mokaba to explain the circumstances around this particular case.
MEC Phokwana-Mokaba must investigate the abuse of state property across the province.
