Public Protector Busiswe Mkhwebane found that the former minister, Fikile Mbalula, violated the Executive Members' Ethics Code when he undertook a family vacation to Dubai in 2016.
According to EWN reporter Barry Bateman, the trip cost about 680 000.
Mbalula claimed he took a loan from Sedgars Sport director Yusuf Dockrat to pay for his holiday but that he paid back the money.
Bateman has revealed that the money was only paid back after Mbalula was exposed by Eyewitness News.
There is a limitation because Mbalula is no longer a Cabinet member nor he is a Member of Parliament. However, she has referred the matter to Finacial Intelligence Centre as well as National Prosecuting Authority.— Barry Bateman, EWN senior reporter
It is primarily a link with those cash payments and whether payments related to this entire trip was the result of criminal proceeds.— Barry Bateman, EWN senior reporter
Also in the briefing on Wednesday, Mkhwebane said that Western Cape Premier Helen Zille had violated the Constitution by exposing herself to a risk of conflict of interest.
This relates to unpaid work done by Zille's son in Western Cape schools.
Zille has rejected Mkhwebane's findings saying that her son was given no preferential treatment and that she would have treated any other legitimate volunteer the same way.
