on Wednesday, co-operative governance & traditional affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma will appear in parliament to field questions from DA MPs, among others, who want to know on what basis her department paid out about R4m “in performance rewards” to employees in the 2018/2019 financial year, despite her department obtaining a second consecutive audit disclaimer.

The other questions she will have to answer are whether the department will take any steps to recoup the R664,570 paid to “deceased beneficiaries of the Community Works Programme in the 2018/2019 financial year”, and what steps she has taken against departmental officials who “permitted irregular expenditure amounting to R151m” to be incurred in the 2018/2019 financial year. On Thursday, Deputy President David Mabuza will answer questions in the National Assembly.

EFF deputy president and MP Floyd Shivambu will ask Mabuza for the identities of the people he said had misled President Cyril Ramaphosa about load-shedding in December.
