Today is D-Day for Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini to give reasons to the Constitutional Court why she should not be held personally accountable for the grants debacle, and foot the legal bill for the crisis which landed her department before the court.

Dlamini has already stated that she takes responsibility for her department’s failure to comply with a 2013 Constitutional Court ruling concerning the payment of 17 million grants.

The court has further ordered that she report to it every three months about her depar tment’s state of readiness in getting its own independent grant-distributing system up and running by March next year. – TMG Digital
