DA applies for international relations dept report

2012-01-23 19:10

Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance will apply for access to a report on alleged fraud and maladministration in the international relations and co-operation department.

"The DA will submit a Promotion of Access to Information Act (Paia) application today [Monday]," MP Kenneth Mubu said.

"The department has reportedly refused to reveal the details of the report, which apparently cites nepotism, irregular appointments, and ghost workers."

The report was apparently presented to the department in May last year.

Leaked findings included a lack of transparency in staff appointments, a breakdown in the relationship between employees and management, and the need for the Special Investigating Unit to look into salaries for non-existent staff.

Mubu said the department should be transparent for South Africa to play a leading role, both on the continent and globally.

"If there is a pending crisis at the department, South Africans have a right to know about it and to understand what is being done there to address it."

The DA would be submitting parliamentary questions to Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane to determine how the problems were being addressed.

    Yawn, yet another day at the office of African National Corruption. More millions stolen. Next....

      And they want to nationalise the mines - can you imagine what would happen to the only national asset that has not been ANC-ed. I am beginning to think that some of us have reason to be proud SAcans. Show me ANY other minority in the world that can keep a country's economy going, despite the onslaught, of such an overwhelming criminal corrupt majority..?

    A secrecy bill on one hand and the PAIA on the other... hmm, I wonder who is under which law... :-)

    This is exactly why the ANC's information bill is so dangerous. If it were alive the report would be classified secret and the media wouldn't even be able to say it existed let alone report some official won't release it.

    I wish the DA luck in getting the report sometime this year. I can see court actions, "file getting lost", delays, retrenchments, maybe in 2014 sometime...

    Filthy thieving bastards. Really time to reconsider us paying, what for, for these c%$7nts to steal everything. Surprisingly no one ever goes to jail.

    Isn't this the same cow that had to charter a plane because she wouldn't let the airport staff in Europe scan her handbag? Skelm c*^t.
