All those who have been living large at taxpayer expense may soon have to answer uncomfortable questions.

The North West provincial government is set to embark on lifestyle audits of all its politicians, Premier Supra Mahumapelo said on Friday.

“All things being equal, we should have this report ready for public perusal by the end of April 2018,” he said in his State of the Province Address in Marikana near Rustenburg.

“It is important that we clarify that the fight against greed, crime and corruption is not directed at any particular individual/s. We wish to clarify that the mandate to launch an onslaught against greed, crime and corruption is an ANC resolution as confirmed by the 54th National Conference and subsequent ANC Lekgotla.”

He appealed to all people affected or implicated in these investigations to cooperate with authorities.

“On our part, government will offer any help required to speed up investigations and no officials in government will be permitted to delay or withhold any information required to assist the process.”
