The provincial handbook also stipulated that a Cabinet member may not have a business interest in any entity conducting business with the provincial government if the Cabinet member together with one or more family members, partners or other business associates -- or other Cabinet members -- directly or indirectly owned or controlled more than 5% of the shares, stock, membership or other interest of that entity.
No such rule existed in the national handbook, said Zille.
