DA Member of Parliament Timothy Brauteseth says amounts spent on the supposed educational events hosted by Sassa are suspicious.

Democratic Alliance Member of Parliament Timothy Brauteseth says the amounts spent on the supposed educational events hosted by Sassa are suspicious.

Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, Brauteseth says all the amounts were below the R500 000 threshold, therefore, they didn't have to go through the tender process.

We want to actually subpoena Pearl Bhengu to come and appear in front of Scopa to answer all these questions.

Timothy Brauteseth, DA MP 

There were five events requested to the total of R20 million and only three took place. On a parliamentary reply, we got the breakdown of the expenditure and it was astronomical.

Brauteseth says top SASSA officials were in parliament on Tuesday to answer the question except for the one person who could be accountable for these events. He says the former SASSA CEO said she was not feeling well.

The question that needs to be answered is that, what were the events for? They were touted as being educational in terms of the new SASSA-Sapo cards that will come out but they were five months premature because they are still working on the cards.

Listen what else the money was spent for...
