A video has surfaced on Social Media allegedly showing a senior politician in Barberton receiving food parcels directly to their home.
South African politicians have been clearly instructed that they do not get involved with the work of distributing food to those that need it. Food parcel deliveries are transparent other provinces have opted to receive them directly to a warehouse and not a residential address.
Further questions have been sent to the Mpumalanga Province Government to shed some light on the situation.
