Officials in municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal could face the wrath of the law if they failed to repay unauthorised expenditures they had sanctioned.

KwaZulu-Natal's MEC for Local Government, Housing and Traditional Affairs, Mike Mabuyakhulu, warned yesterday that investigations of some municipalities had uncovered the abuse of public funds in which "avoidable and fruitless expenditures" were incurred.

He accused the municipalities of Nongoma, eNquthu, Mpofana, Umtshezi and Ukhahlamba.

Mabuyakhulu said his department had issued surcharges authorising that the costs be recovered .
