In response to the DA parliamentary questions regarding the expenditure of various government departments on new vehicles for ministers, totalling millions of Rands, Police ministry spokesman Hangwani Mulaudzi had this to say:
"The minister is in a delicate portfolio and he is a VIP and should be treated as such. When he (the minister, Mthethwa) is executing his duties we want him to be comfortable. To me, this boils down to racial slurs".

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen! The heart of the matter, and straight from the horse's mouth. If you ask questions, you're a racist.
Mulaudzi went on to say that the minister's "inherited" vehicles, a 2003 Audi A8 and a 2006BMW X5, had to be replaced because they were mechanically unsound.
How is it possible to destroy an X5 in three years? Will there be some sort of enquiry into this abuse of state vehicles?
I doubt it.
