Gauteng's number 1 citizen owes the Johannesburg Traffic Department more
than R17 000 in unpaid traffic fines and has two warrants of arrest
pending against her.

According to information obtained, Premier Nomvula Mokonyane has 50
speeding fines registered under her identity number on the metro
police's data base.

The fines, which range in cost from R100 to R1 500, were incurred over
four years with the earliest recorded in July, 2005, for an offence
committed in Ontdekkers Road and the latest committed in December, 2009,
on the M2 east.

Mokonyane's unpaid traffic fines came to the fore during Independent
Newspapers' audit into the premier's lifestyle.

The premier refused to answer any questions relating to the fines or her

"Why do I want to take part in this?" she asked.

In total the premier owes the JMPD a total of R17 250.
