Mokonyane’s appointment as Communications Minister worries Godi

The Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) says it’s concerned over the appointment of Nomvula Mokonyane as Communications Minister following what it calls the total collapse of the Water and Sanitation Department.

Scopa says it supports the call for a full parliamentary inquiry into the Minister’s former department. This follows failure by the department’s officials to respond to the questions posed by Scopa during Tuesday’s meeting.

Scopa chairperson Themba Godi says, “If you look at the shambles in the Department of Water and Sanitation the total collapse of that department, clearly the political responsibility falls on the lack of Minister Mokonyane.”

“It therefore disqualified her from being given any other position within Cabinet because in this department that she is coming from she has presided over its total collapse. We are saying that she was not deserving of still being in the Cabinet,” concludes Godi.
