Durban - Senior politicians in KwaZulu-Natal are not paying their traffic fines, the Mercury reported on Monday.

According to the newspaper, more than R79 000 in fines had been incurred by provincial officials. Almost R65 000 of this had been written off because of non-payment.

Eleven warrants of arrests had been issued for Premier Zweli Mkhize, Police Commissioner Mmamonnye Ngobeni and MECs, but had not been enforced, the newspaper reported.

There were still two active warrants of arrest out on Mkhize after one of his vehicles was caught on camera either speeding or running a red robot.

A warrant for his arrest issued in 2002 was withdrawn after the two year period for enforcement lapsed.

The Mercury reported that a warrant of arrest was issued for Health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo in 2002 and for Economic Development and Tourism MEC Mike Mabuyakhulu in 2003. Three warrants for the arrest of Finance MEC Ina Cronje had been cancelled and five for Education MEC Senzo Mchunu.

Provincial transport spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said the Road Traffic Act stated that if a warrant for a violation was not effected in two years, it was cancelled.

The SA Police Service is responsible for transporting officials in the province.
