The allegations relate to a family trip to Dubai in December 2016.  

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane referred the matter to the NPA after she found Mbalula, who was minister of sport at the time, went on a holiday partially financed by sports supplier Sedgars Sport. 

At the time of the trip, the company was conducting business with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee. 

The trip is estimated to have cost R680 000.  

The NPA says it has found no evidence of criminality in its investigation into Mbalula.  

“After police investigations, guided by the prosecutors in the Pretoria SCCU office and the DPP office, a decision to decline to prosecute anyone in this matter was taken, as there is no evidence supporting allegations of criminal activity,” NPA spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana said on Wednesday.
