With a mandate from Cogta Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the National Disaster Management Centre (NDMC) has shot down a bill that proposes to take away the minister's unilateral power to extend a state of disaster and give it to Parliament.

The Disaster Management Amendment Bill is a private member's bill by FF Plus leader Pieter Groenewald.

The Portfolio Committee on Cogta met on Wednesday to hear from Groenewald and the NDMC.
