The DA in the Waterberg has cried foul over the district mayor’s R1-million German-made top-of-the-range official vehicle.

The Waterberg District Municipality had not responded to The Post’s queries at the time of going to print, regarding the DA’s issues regarding the luxury Mercedes Benz GL SUV.

The DA said the vehicle cost the taxpayer R1-million. 

DA caucus leader Nadine Laubscher said Mataboge should dispose of the vehicle, which she said affected service delivery.

The DA called on the Limpopo Cooperative Governance MEC, Jerry Ndou, to urgently probe this “display of wasteful expenditure”, and to hold the mayor accountable.

Laubscher said it was unacceptable this kind of money was spent on one luxury vehicle while, for example,  firefighting services were understaffed and needed additional vehicles.

Municipal spokesperson, Pat Malete, promised to respond shortly.
