Taxpayers have spent nearly R60m on former presidents - including deputy presidents - over several years.
This has been revealed by Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu in a written parliamentary reply.
Giving a breakdown of the money spent on each president, Eyewitness News reporter Babalo Ndenze says former president Kgalema Motlanthe is at the top of the list.
Former president Kgalema Motlanthe is at the top of the list with R16.9m spent on his office. He is followed by former president Thabo Mbeki who is sitting at R 13.7m, followed by former president Jacob Zuma who is sitting at R6m. He has been out of office for about 18 months, a shorter period than Motlanthe.— Babalo Ndenze, Reporter - EWN
Ndenze says the Democratic Alliance (DA) has questioned Motlanthe's bill.
