If you were looking for the most expensive‚ and latest models in the latest Gauteng MPL’s register of interests‚ you will be disappointed.

A glimpse into the members’ register of interests for 2016/2017‚ which has been compiled by the Office of the Integrity Commissioner that is available for inspection by the public‚ showed that very few MECs owned flashy models.

Transport MEC Ismail Vadi has listed four vehicles that he owns‚ the latest model being a 2007 Nissan Tiida. His other vehicles are a 2002 Mercedes Benz‚ a 1998 Mazda and a 1997 Toyota Conquest.
