Parliament fund abuse to be investigated

2012-03-24 22:45
Johannesburg - Parliamentary Secretary Zingile Dingani will be investigated for allegedly using R186 000 of the institution's money to build a wall around his house.

"The presiding officers of Parliament have noted with serious concern the reportage around the advance salary payment made, in December 2011, to the secretary to Parliament, Mr Zingile Dingani, for the construction of a security wall at his residence," said a statement from Parliament.

"The presiding officers have taken a decision to refer the matter for investigation to the auditor general.

"If it was to be [found] that such an investigation is outside of the auditor general's scope, the public protector will be requested to take the investigation up under the auspices of her office."

In 2009, a senior management meeting, chaired by Dingani, agreed that financial assistance to parliamentary staff, including loans, be stopped.

Dingani, who earned R1.8m a year, was meant to repay the money in R10 000 monthly instalments, but December's instalment was refunded to him.
