Cape Town - Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille said on Monday no decision had been made on whether to disclose the outcomes of the yet to be undertaken integrity and lifestyle audits of senior department officials.
“The decision to disclose the results of the integrity and lifestyle audits has not been made.
"I will apply my mind after consulting with my Cabinet colleagues on the best way to deal with the outcome of the reports arising from lifestyle audits,” De Lille said.
She was responding to DA chief whip John Steenhuisen, who asked whether the integrity and lifestyle audits of senior officials in her department had commenced. Steenhuisen also asked for the details of the audits, whether they were conducted by an external service provider, and how that service provider was appointed.
De Lille had undertaken during her budget vote speech in July to institute lifestyle audits of all senior officials. In her written response, De Lille said the integrity and lifestyle audits of senior officials within the department had not yet commenced.
