Due process being followed on birthday funding allegations
Premier Helen Zille has noted a media report on allegations around the funding of Human Settlements Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela’s birthday celebration.
The Premier is currently following due process to establish the facts of the matter. Should further action be required, this will be done in line with good governance practices.
The provincial government has extensive procurement monitoring systems in place. This has enabled every provincial department, including Human Settlements, to obtain a clean financial audit. Provincial government systems exclude politicians from processes relating to the awarding of contracts.
