GAUTENG premier Nomvula Mokonyane has 50 speeding fines and two

pending warrants of arrest against her name, The Star newspaper reported


The daily newspaper said the R17?000 in fines, ranging from R100 to

R1?500, were incurred over a period of four years and were registered on the

metro police’s data base.

Two of the fines show warrants of arrest are pending, which means a

magistrate has decided to issue the warrant, but the order for arrest had not

been signed yet.

The fines are linked to six vehicles.

It could not be proved that she was the driver at the time of the

offences, but all the vehicles were registered in her name.

Mokonyane said in reaction: “I’d prefer not to talk about my

personal life . . . Why are you choosing me to do this to? I believe you guys

are being too hard on politicians.”
