President Cyril Ramaphosa says the corruption allegations against Eastern Cape Premier, Oscar Mabuyane, will be studied.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has concluded that Mabuyane improperly benefited from funds meant for a Winnie Madikizela-Mandela memorial service.
He was found to have pocketed at least R450 000 to renovate his home.
Ramaphosa says the matter will be looked at closely.
"In the Eastern Cape, I haven't seen the report myself, I have just read about it in the media and clearly it is a matter that has to be looked at closely and to be studied and put under consideration," he said.
