Minister Lindiwe Sisulu not about spending R10 million on gifts, donations and sponsorships
21 July 2017
Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu would like to distance herself from a R10 million spending incurred by the Department on gifts, donations and sponsorships in the 2013/14 financial year as she was not the political head at the time.
It should be noted that although the Minister was required to provide information on this matter which occurred in the financial year ending on March 2014, she only joined the department in July 2014.
It is therefore grossly opportunistic, malicious and mischievous to portray Minister Sisulu as the person responsible for this spending.
