Bathabile Dlamini and Sassa no-shows at Parly meeting
EWN reporter Lindsay Dentlinger was at the Portfolio Committee on Social Development report-back scheduled in Parliament on Wednesday. The meeting was to receive a progress report on Sassa grant delivery issues, but neither the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) nor Minister Bathabile Dlamini was present.
The Minister gave her usual excuse, reports Dentlinger, that Wednesdays is the Day of Cabinet meetings.
But her deputy has not been at a single meeting the entire year and she is not part of the Cabinet.Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
Sassa sent a letter on Tuesday night saying it had nothing meaningful to report.
There has been no progress and they thought it would be pointless to turn up.Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
