The Select Committee on Social Services is concerned that the Minister of Home Affairs has not shared with the Committee the reasons for the suspension of the Director-General.

While the Committee acknowledges that the Director-General has taken the matter for judicial review and that the matter is between an employer and employee, the Committee is of the view that the Minister could have taken the Committee and Parliament into its confidence about the suspension, especially as it relates to service delivery.

This is because the Director-General, as the accounting officer according to the Public Finance Management Act, is critical to service delivery and governance of the department.

“The rules of Parliament make provision for Committees to hold close meetings where they deem necessary. This matter could have been handled in this manner if the Minister was reluctant to share the information in an open setting due to the judicial review the Director-General has undertaken,” said Mrs Cathy Dlamini, the Chairperson of the Committee.

The Committee is hopeful that the Minister will urgently inform the Committee of the reasons for the Director-General’s suspension.
