Cape Town – Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo on Thursday acknowledged that she had not declared a trip taken to Dubai and her stay at the Oberoi Hotel and said she would “take whatever is meted out” and admit to wrongdoing if it is indeed the case.

During a media briefing at Parliament following a Cabinet meeting held on Wednesday, Dlodlo was asked to clarify allegations made in the media about her trip to Dubai.

The Sunday Times reported that Dlodlo failed to declare a 2015 trip to Dubai and her stay at the luxurious Oberoi Hotel when she was the Deputy Minister of Public Service and Administration.
