North West Premier Thandi Modise has ignored a Cabinet directive against splurging on luxury vehicles, and treated herself to a R1.3m BMW750i.

According to the Sunday Times, the MEC for transport in the province, Raymond Elisha, has confirmed the purchase.

This comes after Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan instructed ministers, MECs and premiers to curb their penchant for splurging on luxury cars.

Meanwhile, Democratic Alliance North West leader Chris Hattingh said this latest extravagance comes at a time when service delivery was under extreme pressure and when emergency drought relief measures were collapsing.

He also said officials were put under pressure to deliver the car in time for Modise’s birthday on 25 December.
