As a taxpayer who contributes to the salary of KwaZulu-Natal health MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu, I call on the provincial leadership to stop the practice of having high-ranking MECs supporting former president Jacob Zuma at his myriad court appearances.

MECs should be given a stern warning that if they wish to attend court, they will be required to request a day’s leave or face the might of the law. Our premier should leave no stone unturned to see this enforced.

The practice is a heinous waste of taxpayers’ money.
