Communications Minister Faith Muthambi’s own ANC caucus has expressed their displeasure at her continued absence from crucial portfolio committee meetings‚ and want to engage with her urgently to address her department’s failures.
Muthambi has missed the second meeting in less than a month‚ again owing to an engagement with President Jacob Zuma.
In February, she was visiting Soshanguve with Zuma and this week they were in KwaZulu-Natal.
Muthambi was supposed to brief the committee on her department’s performance as well as matters pertaining to the SABC and its interim board.
“It’s something that really is now a concern‚” ANC MP Nokuzola Tolashe said.
