DA wants Sisulu to explain R10m spent on flowers and gifts


The Democratic Alliance is demanding that Minister of Human Settlements fully explain the R10 million her department spent on gifts and flowers in the 2013-2014 financial year.

“[Sisulu] must also make public the full list of people who benefited from the R10 million,” DA member of parliament Solly Malatsi said.

Malatsi said the figure was revealed when Minister Lindiwe Sisulu responded to a question posed by the DA.

“Minister Lindiwe Sisulu revealed, in a reply to a DA question, that her department spent more than R10 million on flowers and gifts for employees in the 2013-14 financial year,” MP Malatsi said on Sunday.

He confirmed that the DA would submit further questions to Parliament for more details into the matter.
