Cape Town – Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa will face questions about South Africa’s nuclear deal, the national minimum wage, and the practice of fronting, when he appears in the National Council of Provinces on Wednesday.

Ramaphosa will be asked how government will ensure metros like Tshwane and Nelson Mandela Bay will continue to be part of job creation projects and programmes. The ANC lost control of these metros to coalition governments after the August 3 local government elections.

The ANC’s Tasneem Motara will ask the deputy president about fronting - the circumvention of black economic empowerment legislation and codes through misrepresentation.

The IFP’s Mntomuhle Khawula wants to know how the trade and industry department’s efforts to attract investment with its “one-stop investment shop” are progressing.

The DA’s Willem Faber will ask if government has entered into a nuclear deal with any country. If it has, why has the procurement process been stalled; if not, why has the government failed to disclose ten documents to the Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute and Earthlife Africa Johannesburg?

The EFF’s Tebogo Mokwele will ask Ramaphosa if the national minimum wage will be implemented before the end of 2016.
