16 Aug Parliament summons Minister Faith Muthambi on allegations of nepotism
Parliament has summoned the Minister of Public Service and Administration Faith Muthambi to appear before it next week to respond to allegations of nepotism and other financial irregularities in her department. Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises also resolved to recover the costs of travelling and accommodation from the minister in her personal capacity including her DG. Muthambi snubbed the committee yesterday where she was expected to account on various allegations. Committee Chairperson Makhosi Khoza says despite having met Muthambi in parliament yesterday - the minister never said a word that she would boycott the meeting. It also emerged that five ANC members of the committee boycotted the meeting too. Abongwe Kobokana filed this report.
