WHAT HAP­PENED

GAUT­ENG MEC for agri­cul­ture No­mantu Nkomo-Rale­hoko ten­dered her res­ig­na­tion due to pub­lic pres­sure af­ter the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of her newly bought of­fi­cial car. The sec­ond­hand Mercedes-Benz – worth R929 000 – was stolen the day af­ter it was im­prop­erly bought by her hus­band on her be­half and driven home without in­sur­ance or a tracking de­vice fit­ted to it. THE STAR – which broke the story – wel­comed the res­ig­na­tion and said the episode should be a les­son to other pub­lic ser­vants. The Ci­ti­zen equally wel­comed the de­ci­sion and said it was a step in the right di­rec­tion. It added SA needed that many more such brakes on Gov­ern­ment’s gravy train.
