The Constitutional Court has ruled that former Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini be personally liable for 20% of legal costs for last year's Sassa debacle.

The court ruled that because Dlamini misled the court about her role in the grants fiasco, it is only proper that she pays.

What if someone there had said, I don't know.
