Johannesburg - Gauteng has seen immense abuse of state resources under Premier Nomvula Mokonyane, the DA said on Friday.

"During Premier Mokonyane's term of office we have seen abuse driven from the very top of this administration," DA Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane told journalists in Rosebank, Johannesburg.

He said R1.2m had been spent on new furniture for the premier's official residence.

The DA's proposed new ministerial handbook for Gauteng would ban all MECs from involvement in entities doing business with the state.

"The handbook would slash the allowed cost of official vehicles from 70% to 40% of a member's salary."

He said the handbook would also limit flights less than eight hours to economy class for all.

It would further limit all car rentals to D-class vehicles, said Maimane.
