Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu said she spent R689,000 on a business trip to the United Kingdom and France in October last year.

This emerged when she replied to a parliamentary question ask by Democratic Alliance MP Toby Chance‚ according to a statement released by the party on Friday.


He said the DA would ask further questions about what the money was spent on during Zulu’s business trip.

Zulu’s spending followed complaints by her department about the shortage of funds for their programmes aimed at boosting small business‚ Chance added.
