Western Cape MECs and their partners have all been found to live a lifestyle in line with their income, Premier Alan Winde has said.
This after they underwent lifestyle audits at the beginning of his term, conducted by Nexus Forensic Services, an independent contractor appointed through an open tender process, he said in a statement.
Intelligence Searches (BIS) were conducted and included questionnaires and supporting documents for the declarations made on the questionnaires, whereafter their bank statements were analysed.
“The final report found that all ministers and their spouses led lifestyles commensurate with their income during the two year period and did not pick up any conflicts of interest,” Winde said.
The contractor, however, advised that Director General Harry Malila request members of the executive to declare interests in any dormant or non-active business entities, in line with best practice.
