It has emerged that Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane is leading a charge by ministers who have publicly defended President Jacob Zuma against the National Treasury.
Sunday Times reports that Mokonyane believes Treasury behaves as the de facto leader of the government.
Meanwhile City Press also reports that Water and Sanitation Department is bankrupt and has been allegedly operating on an overdraft of more than R2.6 billion.
Xolani Gwala comments on the issue.
There is absolutely no coincidence here, you have a minister whose department is in trouble leading the charge against Treasury, and the conclusion is that she wants more money from Treasury.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
It's worrying that instead of addressing leakages within your department minister, you want Treasury to give you more money.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
Nobody says Treasury are angels, but unless minister and those who are supporting you can prove to us that what Treasury is doing is unconstitutional, please allow them to do their work.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
