Muthambi misses another meeting with Parly committee
Minister Faith Muthambi has apologised, saying she is accompanying President Jacob Zuma on an official visit to KwaZulu-Natal.
JOHANNESBURG - Minister Faith Muthambi has missed another meeting with Parliament’s portfolio committee on communications.
The minister has apologised, saying she is accompanying President Jacob Zuma on an official visit to KwaZulu-Natal.
The committee is concerned because she gave members the same reason for missing a similar meeting a week ago, when she travelled with the president to Soshanguve.
It says it’s important for the minister to prioritise seeing the portfolio committee and it will arrange another urgent meeting with her soon.
The committee wants to urgently discuss the SABC board inquiry and the turnaround plan of the interim board with Muthambi, as well as the issue of filling vacancies at a senior level in her department.
