TPumla Western Cape he grants crisis is manufactured at best. You must understand that the ANC banks on the fact that these millions of people are desperate and vulnerable. Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini said they would pay by April 1, but did not mention a thing about the illegality of using Cash Paymaster Services (CPS). Guess what? Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan will be blamed for respecting the court’s decision. Mpho Mashilo Gauteng All this was just a set-up because they wanted CPS to be the company on this tender. In 2014, the Constitutional Court ruled that the tender was issued irregularly.
No one in the department took action. They also knew that the contract expired at the end of this month. Why didn’t they advertise the tender months ago? Franklin via SMS A fish rots from the head. Jacob Zuma continuously disrespects accountability and governance as the president. Who will or should respect the laws? Basically, Bathabile Dlamini is doing Zuma and the ANC’s bidding, which is to loot the fiscus. Sandy Johnston Eastern Cape The grants debacle was quite obviously manufactured and Bathabile Dlamini was clearly a key instigator of this. The chief executive of the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa), Thokozani Magwaza, advises that on the three occasions he appealed to the highest court in the land for guidance, Dlamini blocked him.
The record shows that Dlamini has clearly been a key player in ensuring, as best as she can, that CPS continues with grant payments. Also, her actions in the unfolding crisis (as described by Magwaza) bear witness to her ongoing complicity in what is obviously a highly corrupt chain of events. Tilly Gauteng After all, South Africa is Zuma’s banana republic. Under him, who will respect the Constitution because he is alpha and omega? He who must be obeyed against all odds. All the female leaders are under his spell. But the truth shall prevail. P Pilane North West
