Bathabile given 48 hours to disclose “smallanyana” skeletons….. or hell will break loose

Last updated on June 15, 2019

The Demo­c­ra­t­ic Alliance (DA) has giv­en for­mer Min­is­ter Batha­bile Dlami­ni 48 hours to report offi­cials whose wives ben­e­fit­ted from Cash Pay­mas­ter Ser­vices (CPS) to the police.

CPS was dis­trib­ut­ing social wel­fare month­ly grants to over nine mil­lion ben­e­fi­cia­ries in South Africa dur­ing Dlamini’s suprema­cy as Min­is­ter of Social Devel­op­ment.

Dlami­ni resigned as an ANC Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment (MP).

Her res­ig­na­tion togeth­er with Derek Hanekom was announced on Tues­day morn­ing.

This brings to 8 the num­ber of ANC MPs resigned.

They are Nomain­dia Mfeke­to, Dipuo Let­sat­si-Duba, Susan Sha­ban­gu, Thokozile Xasa. Siyabon­ga Cwele and Jeff Radebe.

Announc­ing his res­ig­na­tion Dlami­ni also claims she knows the wives of the ANC mem­bers involved in a dubi­ous rela­tion­ship with CPS.

“In the let­ter, she states that “[those] that made a prof­it through CPS by their wives known and respect­ed by the organ­i­sa­tion [ANC] noth­ing is being said to them.”

DA Shad­ow Min­is­ter of Social Devel­op­ment, Brid­get Masan­go said her par­ty is giv­ing Dlami­ni 48 hours to report this alleged cor­rup­tion to the police, if she fails, “We will pro­ceed with lay­ing crim­i­nal charges against her.”

“Sec­tion 34 of the Pre­ven­tion and Com­bat­ing of Cor­rupt Activ­i­ties Act states that any­one who sus­pects or knows of anoth­er per­son who has com­mit­ted cor­rup­tion should report it to police.

Fail­ure to do so is an offence,

Masan­go said DA has already laid per­jury charges against her.

This fol­low­ing the damn­ing judg­ment in which the Con­sti­tu­tion­al Court request­ed the Nation­al Pros­e­cut­ing Author­i­ty to con­sid­er whether it should pros­e­cute Dlami­ni for lying under oath.

Dlami­ni gave tes­ti­mo­ny before Judge Bernard Ngoepe Inquiry into the social grants deba­cle.

“She has nev­er tak­en per­son­al respon­si­bil­i­ty for her hand in man­u­fac­tur­ing the social grants cri­sis. Instead, she has blamed her detrac­tors of scape­goat­ing her and played the vic­tim. Whether she is an MP or not, we will ensure that she gets her day in court,” added Masan­go.
