A core staff member of the Eastern Cape Health Department has been arrested after he was caught transporting alcohol in a government vehicle.

The 33-year-old was handcuffed on Saturday.

Health MEC spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said the man allegedly took the department’s car without authorization.

“We condemn the incident. It is an embarrassment to all of us. As such, we want the department to take appropriate action.”
