A new mayor in South Africa says he will give away a fleet of new luxury cars ordered by his predecessors.
Solly Msimanga, from the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA), said the vehicles would instead be given to a police anti-hijack unit.
However, he will continue to use the luxury car used by the previous mayor.
Mr Msimanga said no more luxury cars would be bought under his leadership.
He took over from the governing ANC, which lost control of the capital for the first time since 1994, last month.
He will still use a BMW 5 series car he inherited from the previous mayor.
Mr Msimanga’s spokesman Matthew Gerstner told the BBC that this vehicle could not “be dispensed with because it’s been bought and paid for already and treasury regulations prohibit that”.
He added: “But, as soon as he can replace it, he will, with a sensible, low-cost vehicle”.
