Eastern Cape - Public protector advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane said on Wednesday that she was still waiting for Eastern Cape premier Oscar Mabuyane to implement her remedial action against provincial director-general Marion Mbina-Mthembu in relation to the Nelson Mandela funeral scandal.
"We are going to follow up the implementation of the public protector remedial action with the current premier. There has been progress with municipalities, they have been implementing our remedial actions," said Mkhwebane.
She was speaking to African News Agency (ANA) at the Eastern Cape Legislature in Bhisho during an annual stakeholder roadshow hosted by her office, which will see her travel to various provinces throughout the year.
In a report issued by Mkhwebane's office in 2017, it was found that Mbina-Mthembu had acted unlawfully when she authorised that R300 million from provincial coffers be directed to the Eastern Cape Development Cooperation for events related to the former president's funeral.
Mkhwebane's report found that the provincial procurement processes were fraught with maladministration, financial irregularities and fruitless and wasteful expenditure.
