Gauteng MPLs Disclose a Variety of Gifts

An RDP house, bottles of whisky and wine, a R4 500 cash donation, 43c worth of shares, and a paid return trip to Port Elizabeth are just some of the items that were disclosed by the Glauteng Legislature on Wednesday.

Lindiwe Lasindwa, an MPL and chairwoman of the portfolio committee on infrastructure development, confirmed that she’s the owner of the RDP house since 1998. It is situated in KwaThema Springs. She also said that she owns another house within the area.

Lasindwa also has 3 vehicles, which includes the 2015 model Mercedes-Benz. “I was just disclosing what I owned. I did not want to hide anything,” she said in a statement on Wednesday.

Members of the legislature are now required to disclose their business interests in their legislature members’ register, including Premier David Makhura.

Of the 73 MPLs, another MPL and member of the ANC Women’s League Jackie Mofokeng, confirmed that she received R4 500 donation in behalf of the league for their justice campaign for Reeva Steenkamp. Steenkamp was murdered by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorius, a Paralympian, in 2013.

Mofokeng also received a sponsored returned trip to Port Elizabeth last November to attend Reeva Steenkamp Foundation’s formation.

Meanwhile, Human Settlements MEC Paul Mashatie also received bottles of whisky as a gift. Presently, he owns R250 shares of Telkom. He also has a BMW X6 and a VW GTI.

Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu disclosed his ownership of a house at a certain location. In 2015, she received a Johnnie Walker Platinum Whisky worth R949.95 for Christmas, as well as Meerlust Chardonnay and an R700 worth of gift basket.
