Johannesburg - Gauteng MEC for local government Humphrey Mmemezi has submitted a report regarding the use of his departmental credit card to premier Nomvula Mokonyane, her office said on Wednesday.

"The MEC has submitted a report to premier Mokonyane. The premier is studying it... a pronouncement will be made once all due processes have been completed," Mokonyane's spokesperson Xoli Mngambi said.

He would not say when the report was submitted.

Mokonyane asked Mmemezi to submit a report regarding his alleged misuse of government funds.

Mmemezi allegedly used his departmental credit card to buy a R10 000 "painting" from a fast food restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria.

The African People's Convention (APC) said it hoped Mokonyane would not hesitate to take action should the findings indicate that indeed Mmemezi was guilty.

Spokesperson Patrick Sindane said: "Though we agree that one is innocent until proven guilty, we are hoping that political favours and connections will not compromise transparency honesty and discipline."

The DA said it has submitted a written submission to the Gauteng Legislature's Integrity Commissioner concerning allegations against Mmemezi.

"This submission is made to ensure that the scope of the integrity commissioner's investigation is not too narrow and that all allegations are investigated," said Fred Nel, spokesperson on local government.

He said the DA wanted to know whether the purchasing of groceries, electronics and clothing constituted a breach of the provisions of the ministerial handbook prescribing how official credit cards may be used.

The party also wanted to know whether the purchase of a R10 000 painting from McDonalds fast food in Pretoria, transgressed the provisions of the ministerial handbook's prescripts on the use of an official credit card and whether the purchase transgressed any government supply chain management regulations.

Nel said they also wanted to know whether there was an accident report number for an accident involving his department's BMW X5.

"The DA wants to know whether a claim was lodged with the insurance to repair the vehicle and whether the insurance company is willing to settle the claim."
