The Black Sash's trust, Advocate Geoff Budlender, has questioned how Minister Bathabile Dlamini did not disclose details on her role in the social grants crisis.
The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) inquiry heard closing arguments at the office of the Chief Justice in Midrand on Monday.
Dlamini has been accused of deliberately lying and being evasive in her response to important questions related to the running of the department's controversial work streams.
Eyewitness News reporter, Thando Kubheka, was at the hearing.
Budlender's main argument was to question why Minister Bathabile Dlamin did not disclose to the Constitutional Court her dominant role in the running of these controversial work streams.— Thando Kubheka, Eyewitness News reporter
He says there are so many smoking guns in the minister's evidence. He refered to the evidence given by Sassa top officials Zane Dangor and Thokozani Magwaza. He says their evidence was consistent with what they submitted to the courts, only the minister's evidence was contradictory.— Thando Kubheka, Eyewitness News reporter
Legal counsels have argued that the minister should be held personally liable for the social security agency missing the April 2017 deadline.
