Mthethwa's ignorance 'hard to believe'

2012-07-13 22:34

Johannesburg - It was "hard to believe" that Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa was ignorant about the origins of the funds used to build a security wall around his home, the DA said on Friday.

Democratic Alliance police spokesperson Dianne Kohler Barnard said Auditor General Terence Nombembe's finding that there was no evidence to suggest Mthethwa knew where the money was coming from was "impossible". "I find it hard to believe that there is no evidence to suggest that Minister Mthethwa did not know what was going on at his own house; did not know that a wall was being built around it and did not ask who was footing the bill," she said

Nombembe said he had found that secret service funds were used to pay for the renovations.

However, there was no evidence that Mthethwa was aware of the source and was therefore not implicated in a policy breach.

The findings were released three months after Mthethwa asked the AG to probe press reports that R200 000 from the slush fund was used to pay for the wall around his home in KwaZulu-Natal.

Kohler Barnard said the matter raised serious questions, such as whether Mthethwa made enquiries as to whether state funds were used to build the wall when the matter first made the news.

Also: "Who he thought was paying for the renovations at his home... [and] if the Minister did not arrange for public funds to be used to pay for the wall, who did?"

She said recent "chaos" in the crime intelligence service had eroded the public's confidence in the police.

The DA said the person responsible for ordering that state funds be used to pay for Mthethwa's wall should be held accountable.

"Meanwhile, the DA expects the minister to do the right thing and immediately pay for the wall out of his exceedingly deep ministerial pocket," Kohler Barnard said.

Nombembe said he could also not find any evidence that Mthethwa gave instructions to conduct a risk assessment at his home, or that he was involved in the eventual process.

He called for better oversight by the minister, to prevent any future abuses escaping his attention.

"As a result of the minister not being aware of the activities of the [SA Police Service's] crime intelligence, our recommendation is, amongst others, that the monitoring and accountability practices between the department and the minister be strengthened, and that timely action is taken in instances of non-compliance should this occur again."

According to media reports, the fund was also used pay for a Mercedes-Benz for the minister.

Nombembe said he was not presented with any evidence linking the minister to the car.

Mthethwa welcomed the findings and said he felt vindicated.

"While I noted with concern the continued innuendoes of corruption levelled against me and my name being dragged in the mud, I nevertheless allowed the Auditor General to conduct the investigation," he said.

"Today, I feel vindicated, because the truth has been confirmed."

Mthethwa's spokesperson Zweli Mnisi said the risk assessment at the minister's home had been undertaken by the police "as they would do with each and every executive authority".

Mthethwa had acted on the understanding that it was normal for the government to pay for certain security measures and he had expected that those who conducted the risk assessment would follow proper procedures.

"He had an understanding that in terms of the ministerial handbook and other legislative frameworks such as the PFMA (Public Finance Management Act) some security measures to his private residence might be taken care of by the state," Mnisi said.

"As the minister does not get involved in day-to-day operational matters, he therefore expected any official[s] who carries through their operations and responsibilities, would follow due process and procedures."

The minister would support disciplinary steps against any official found to have breached finance management rules, Mnisi said.

      How much did the AG get paid for his white-wash attempt?

      RabbleRouser - 2012-07-14 07:42

      The AG's report is just simple window dressing. It must be wonderful being a cabinet minister. A boundary wall gets built at your home and you are totaly oblivious as to how it got there and who paid for it. The same thing is probably happening to Zuma's R 65 miilion upgrades at his Nkandla homestead. He is probably clueless as to what is happening and who it paying for it. Bling and corruption have been institutionalised under Zuma's administration.

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-07-14 08:10

      The problem is not that the report clear mTetwa, should it not have shown who did not do his job? If mTetwa was under the impression that normal protocol were followed and one can argue that police slush funds is not to build walls (is it not supposed to be used to spy on members of the press and party opposition), then then someone used the slush fund for something it was not intended and that person must be investigated and if found guilty, fired.

      art5SA - 2012-07-14 08:40

      Thats what SLUSH FUNDS are there for!!!!!! Only for the TOP ANC OFFICIALS TO USE /WASTE/STEAL!!!!!

      Vince.York - 2012-07-14 09:28

      The LAW & SENTENCING needs to be changed to make these apparent 'w collar crimes' worse than violent murder - because the effects of it are as bad and probably in the long corrupt line, worse. Come on o'silent ConCourt - can you continue accepting the chommie cadre outright debilitation of our nation around you without even murmuring. Even CASAC is timid.

      All corruption asside, it is time for a rant... Why is he building a wall? I thought South Africa was such a safe place? This is almost as ironic as the time Mbeki built a 90 milion rand wall around his official residence: http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/Politics/Furore-over-Mbekis-R90m-wall-20070221 And this, 3 years after he said that people who claim that violent crime is out of control are white recists who want the country to fail: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/oct/05/southafrica.rorycarroll I'm getting so tired of this sh*t. But I'm even more tired of the "I told you so's" that I have to meat out to libtards on a daily basis.

      Themba, to be a thug now means he had to start being one sometime in the past. Hence, if you become one, you stay one. That is where the saying comes from - once a thug, always a thug.

    The greed just never ends, these "people" enjoy free housing, free luxury cars, free travel, free security, free petrol, free etoll, free celphone, free bloody everything, nevermind that they also make in excess of a million rand a year at that level, how is it that they feel that they have to engage in corrupt practises in order to supplement their income? How much more money courtesy of the taxpaying public is required for these pigs to be content? How many Maseratis, Breitlings, 5* indabas does it take to satiate their greed? And once our ministers have fulfilled their needs, would it be unreasonable for the public to expect them to actually sit down and do some bloody work for a change?

    This surely proves the existence of fairies beyond any shadow of doubt. Whilst I have always suspected their actions in most ministerial decisions I could never find the proof until now. With all this overwhelming evidence of fairy intervention I can only wonder how many more of their deeds are going to come to the surface. Is it not wonderful that we live in a world where consequence exists only in fairy tales and fairies exist in real life?

    The worst is the way they insult the intelligence of the citizens of this country. Are we really expected to believe that someone in such a responsible position does not question who is paying for his home improvements? Or does it just mean that they are so used to having the taxpayers fund their every wish that they take things for granted? Either way, it is absolutely disgusting how money is squandered by people in such responsible positions.

Of course he knew where the money was coming from but hoped that no one else would find out. This is why we have this government,to steal as much as they can. What a lot of stupid,corrupt,thieving,s.o.b's we have ruining this country.

  • lerato.kay.3 - 2012-07-14 06:05

    Oh so we must now ignore the Auditor General's findings and listen to Dianne Kohler Barnard a shadow minister with only a matric certificate to her name and some radio experience, come on now! The AG is a qualified auditor and this DA woman is well known for swearing in the National Assembly.

      roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-07-14 06:55

      Even with her "matric only" she is not corrupt as your ANC cadres and if you use the little bit of brains you have you will most probably see that the AG is also an ANC member and is not about to find Mthethwa guilty. He should be investigated by a honest AG.

      lerato.kay.3 - 2012-07-14 07:05

      I don't think you have a slight idea of what the AG does, did you go to school sir? Can you base your arguments on facts I'm not good at emotional bleating

      michael.kleber.376 - 2012-07-14 07:21

      And our president does not have a matric and he is running the country , so what are you saying ?

      roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-07-14 07:22

      If someone goes to "your" house and begins putting up a wall what would your reaction be? Would you expect it because of your position as a black person? I only made Std 8 but my brains are in the right place and I only become emotional when I see how these crooks in government are stealing this once beautiful country dry and getting away with it. This is not the first time that this Mthethwa has been dishonest,remember the "One and Only" hotel in Cape Town.

      roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-07-14 07:26

      PS.Read more of the comments made by your own people in these columns and you will see how disgusted they are with Mthethwa and the ANC in general.

      lerato.kay.3 - 2012-07-14 07:46

      I don't base my arguments toward supporting people, be it racial or political lines, no sir! I tend to enjoy aligning to facts. According to the article, Mthethwa had acted on the understanding that it was normal for the government to pay for certain security measures and he had expected that those who conducted the risk assessment would follow proper procedures. This guy is a minister and does most of his job by delegating you can't expect him to project manage such a small assignment!

      Yeah everyone, take a good look at Lerato. He is a classic example of why the anc is still in charge. Cause his beloved comrades can do nothing wrong, even when it's as clear as the light of day. It amazes me still how Africa can be so poor, the governments so corrupt, but their people still believing every lie that comes out of their beloved leaders' mouths. Reminds me of the North Koreans, but at least they have an excuse of not having access to internet and being brainwashed at school.

      lerato.kay.3 - 2012-07-14 10:19

      @audrey.lang.10 as I always say I'm nobody's cde I'm just stating facts! The AG did his job and if you think he was corrupted you can lodge your complaint with Thuli. The ANC is in power because there is no alternative, the DA is just ANC's monitor they can't rule SA because they have no solid policies, go to their website and see for yourself. Mthetwa didn't do anything illegal at all, its just like the DA media tender debacle! If you knew the AG's duties you would have respect for the office

      audrey.lang.10 - 2012-07-14 12:24

      @lerato If this was an isolated incident, I would have believed the AG. But it's obviously not. Anyone who reads the news once a week would by now have realized that the ANC is as corrupt as is humanly possible. This is just another incident where a politician has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, and then he gets protected. There are numerous complaints on this forum about how it's the white man's fault that the majority of SA lives in poverty. But go and add up all the money that has been stolen by ANC officials. Think about if it was rather invested it in the economy, infrastructure, education or job creation, then SA would probably be moving towards becoming a first world country, which by all accounts it should be. But noooooo, they steal to enrich themselves. And the real problem is the majority of SA will just keep voting them into power, the officials will keep stealing, people will stay poor. Vicious circle they call it. The DA woman swears? Boohoo! I would swear too if I had to deal with these corrupt officials on a daily basis. Swearing is by no means stealing, last I checked. So rather give me a minister that swears, at least she won't take my hard earned money. But I guess some people would rather be robbed than sworn at... Oh, and sorry for calling you a comrade. My bad.

    The only way to break the cycle of corruption is to vote them out of power.This will never happens as long as the masses are kept in ignorance and superstition. The apartheid regime set the example, don't teach the people to read and calculate, so they are kept in the dark. Superstition also plays a role in blind obedience. You are told who to vote for - obey your ancestors! This is a vicious cycle and the only way out is education, education, education. But they don't want to do that, the people might see the truth!

    I've been noticing a trend of the auditor general to 'not look so hard" at matters implicating ANC officials. He has to do his job, or he can be replaced, and no one in the ANC to have a "trusted" cadre in this position replaced. But the level of investigation leaves a lot to be desired. As to Nutty, yes, we ALL believe you were absolutely clueless about where the funding came from, who requested the wall, who did the assessment etc, etc. But I am very sure that you would have had a lot to say if they chose to install a prison grade wire fence around your house. But, in his defence, I am sure these ANC criminals are so used to money mysteriously appearing on their bank accounts, swimming pools mysteriously being build in the yards, or their kids private school fees mysteriously being paid that they long go stopped questioning it.

    How could he know, it is a secret service fund... The money for the service (building of the wall) was provided in secret:-)

  • dufousk.dufous - 2012-07-14 08:32

    "According to media reports, the fund was also used pay for a Mercedes-Benz for the minister." And he didn't know where this money came from either.
