Johannesburg - Gauteng Local Government and Housing MEC Humphrey Mmemezi allegedly signed off on a R3 600 car allowance for his daughter and five other Mogale City municipality employees, according to reports on Tuesday.

The Star
newspaper reported that he allegedly signed off on the allowance even though he was warned it was against council travel policy.

In respect of his daughter Nomvuzo Mmemezi, the allowance was backdated for four years to a time when she and three others did not qualify for the perk. The other allowances were also backdated.

As a result, Mmemezi allegedly violated the council's travel policy, which prohibits junior staff from qualifying for a car allowance.

The six had jointly petitioned the municipal manager for the retrospective adjustment.

According to documents seen by the Star, Mmemezi signed off the allowances on May 19, 2010. He was the manager of human capital management at the time.

In an interview with Talk Radio 702 on Monday, he denied inflating his daughter's salary.
