South Africa’s anti-graft ombudsman is investigating how senior members of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) secured passage on a defense force plane to visit Zimbabwe last week.
Ace Magashule, the ANC’S secretary-general, led a 10-member delegation to Zimbabwe to discuss what could be done to resolve that country’s economic and political crisis. Opposition parties the Freedom Front Plus and the African Transformation Movement, and civil rights group Afriforum asked the Public Protector to probe the misuse of state resources after it emerged that they travelled there on the military aircraft with Defense Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.
While Mapisa-Nqakula had permission to attend talks with her counterpart, Magashule conceded that the party officials had traveled “in an unusual manner” and said they will reimburse the government for any costs incurred.
