DA to submit PAIA request to obtain details of Bheki Cele’s Rugby World Cup trip

The DA says it will submit a Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) application to get information about a company that paid for police minister Bheki Cele’s trip to the Rugby World Cup in France.

In response to a DA parliamentary question, Cele revealed that while his trip was sponsored by a private company, taxpayers paid for his executive assistant to the tune of R446,339.43.

“Yes, the trip was fully sponsored by a private company for the minister of police except for the S&T and travel insurance,” said Cele in response to the DA’s Greg Krumbock.

The response shows the ministry spent R33,256 on Cele.
