Democratic Alliance (DA) says it will on Friday lay criminal charges against former Minister of Social Development, Bathabile Dlamini.
In her resignation letter as an ANC MP on Tuesday, Dlamini also stated that she knows spouses of the ANC officials engaged with a questionable relationship with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS).
“In the letter, she expresses that “[those] that made a benefit through CPS by their spouses are known and respected by the African National Congress [ANC] but nothing is being said to them.”
On Tuesday, the opposition party gave former Minister 48 hours to report authorities whose spouses profited from CPS to the police.
CPS was distributing social welfare grants to more than nine million recipients in South Africa during Dlamini’s authority as Minister of Social Development.
DA Shadow Minister of Social Development, Bridget Masango said her association has on Monday allowed Dlamain 48 hours to open an argument at law authorization offices against supposed authorities. Be that as it may, she ignored our call to do the right thing.
“We will lay criminal accusations against former Minister following her inability to report the spouses of ANC individuals she claims were engaged with questionable relationship with CPS,” said Masango.
She confirmed that she will lay criminal allegations against Dlamini at Cape Town Central Police Station on Friday morning.
The DA gave Dlamini 48 hours to report to the police the supposed corruption she claims to know about in her resignation letter.
As far as Section 34 of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, any individual presumes someone else committed corruption, however does not report it, it’s an offense.
Dlamini has for far too long gotten away with evading accountability and the DA will make sure that she along with her ANC cronies get their day in court.
