The chairperson of Parliament’s Home Affairs inquiry into the naturalisation of the Gupta family, Hlomani Chauke, says it has been brought to his attention that a witness in this matter – Ashu Chawla – is out of the country.
The Head of the North West Education and Sport Development Department Stephinah Semaswe has told the Home Affairs probe into the Gupta family’s naturalisation that Home Affairs officials who visited the schools did not get permission from her division.
The National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) says former Home Affairs Director-General, Mkhuseli Apleni should be held liable for bringing the department into disarray.
Home Affairs minister Malusi Gigaba has credited outgoing DG Mkusile Apleni of stabilising the department’s finances, administration and operations.
An automated and paperless programme for birth, marriage and death registrations at Home Affairs offices will eradicate corruption.
