Police Minister Bheki Cele, through his spokesperson, Reneilwe Serero, declined to clarify Mahumapelo’s allocation of VIP protection. The concern came after the DA in the North West lodged a complaint with the public protector’s office to investigate the matter.
But Cele was adamant.
“Mr Mahumapelo has followed due processes in terms of VIP protection services” Serero said on Saturday.
On Thursday, the DA wrote to the public protector’s office in the North West complaining about Mahumapelo’s continued use of state vehicles and 24-hour personal security for him.
