It is believed the event at the Elangeni Hotel in Durban did not have the council's approval.

Hlomuka said, "in our entire lives, we have never seen a breakfast that might cost R5-million. These allegations (are) why we have taken the decision, as the provincial government through Cogta, to institute an investigation under Zululand district."

Hlomuka said the investigation has already commenced and a preliminary report is expected to be released this month.
