Molewa mum on hotel stays
Cape Town - Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa has declined to give detail on costs of the guesthouses and hotels she and her deputy have stayed at in the past two years.
"I am not able to answer this question as it deals with matters that may negatively impact on my personal security and operations of the department," she said in a parliamentary reply tabled on Tuesday.
Democratic Alliance MP David Maynier asked her to say how many international and domestic hotels and guesthouses she and Deputy Minister Rejoice Mabudafhasi had stayed at since April 1 2009.
Among other things, he wanted to know the star rating of these establishments, their location, the purpose of the ministers' stays, and the individual and total costs of the accommodation.
