DA waiting for responses from 4 depts about links with Bell Pottinger
Bell Pottinger has been in the firing line after a trove of leaked emails laid bare the work it did for the Gupta Owned Oakbay company.
The opposition party submitted a range of Parliamentary questions to which the Tourism Department was the only one to admit it has worked with the United Kingdom public relations firm.
Bell Pottinger has been in the firing line after a trove of leaked emails laid bare the work it did for the Gupta-owned Oakbay company.
It will be facing a hearing this month after allegations that some of its conduct in South Africa stirred racial tensions.
The DA's Phumzile van Damme says parties have 10 days to respond to the questions which the party already submitted in May.
“The Departments of Communications, Police, Public Enterprises and Small Business Development have thus far chosen to remain mum about their links with Bell Pottinger. It is very concerning that those departments that have not responded have chosen not to do so.”
