Eleven thousand rand on Nando’s and KFC, R79?000 on groceries, more than R100?000 on petrol and rental cars, and six different swipes for fuel in just one day.

This is how the chief whip of the ANC in the North West legislature, Hoffman Galeng, has been living it up on the party’s corporate credit card, spending hundreds of thousands on takeaways, groceries and fuel.

Galeng, who was appointed chief whip after the May elections, has blown thousands on fast food.

He has also splashed out on fuel, and at times the card has been used four times in one day to fill up petrol at the same service station.

On average, Galeng spent between R25?000 and R50?000 a month with the card between June and November last year.

He also spent thousands on groceries at different supermarkets in his hometown of Vryburg and North West’s capital city, Mahikeng, where the provincial legislature is based and where he has a home when it’s in session.

Confronted this week, Galeng said the revelations were a smear campaign directed at him.

“This malicious rumour is being spread by some people. I was appointed by the movement and whatever I do on a daily and monthly basis, I report to the ANC,” he said.
