Police minister Bheki Cele has asked police commissioner Khehla Sitole to investigate the Mpumalanga premier’s failure to wear a mask in public.
Refilwe Mtsweni-Tsipane was seen arriving at the cemetery for Jackson Mthembu’s burial on Sunday without a mask.
She claims she was oblivious to the fact that her mask had broken.
Earlier at the funeral service, deputy president David Mabuza signalled to Mtsweni-Tsipane to put her mask on as she left the podium.
Cele says necessary action must be taken against the premier should the police commissioner find she contravened COVID-19 regulations.
