South African defence minister’s pay docked overuse of air force plane

South African defence minister’s pay docked overuse of air force plane

The President of South Africa docked the defense minister ‘s pay for three months after authorizing officials of the ruling party to travel with her on an air force plane to Zimbabwe.

Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula was charged with misusing state resources for the political business of the party.

She was on official business and had actually given the other passengers a ride, the defense force had argued.

“But it was deemed a” error of judgment “by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

For a scheduled meeting to discuss regional issues, Ms. Mapisa-Nqakula was traveling to the capital of Zimbabwe, Harare.

In the meantime, the delegation of the governing party of South Africa, the African National Congress (ANC), went there for crisis talks with Zimbabwe ‘s ruling Zanu-PF party to help tackle the political and economic woes of the country.

But the fact that she let the ANC delegation hitch a lift with her was highly critical of opposition politicians.

Mr. Ramaphosa, who had vowed to clean up the image of the ANC after a decade of corruption scandals, said that she had not behaved “in the best interest of good governance” by giving the ANC delegates a lift on the plane.

As a result, he said he had agreed to dock the salary of Ms. Mapisa-Nqakula with the money going to the coronavirus fund to help fight it.

In response, Mr. Ramaphosa had not gone far enough, characterizing the penalty as a slap on the wrist, the opposition Democratic Alliance party said.

Amid some calls for her to be fired, the topic may be further debated in parliament.
