NFP Leader Must Appear Before SCOPA

09 July 2014.


The IFP calls on the KZN Chairperson of SCOPA to set as a matter of urgency a date with NFP leader, Mrs Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi, to appear before the Standing Committee on Public Accounts (SCOPA ) in the KZN Legislature. Failing this a formal summons must be given for her to appear.


"As kaMagwaza-Msibi has been appointed Deputy Minister of Science and Technology we think it vital for her to appear before SCOPA to address the serious claims of abuse of public funds which were levelled against Zululand Municipality during her tenure as Zululand District Mayor. Claims that public funds were used to support the NFP cannot just be ignored and others should not be held accountable for her decisions,” said IFP Leader in the KZN Legislature, Mr Blessed Gwala.


“Considering that even the ANCYL, led by former Police Commissioner, Bheki Cele, staged a protest in Ulundi complaining about corruption and maladministration in the Zululand District Municipality, it is essential that the Deputy Minister start her new career without a shadow hanging over her,” Mr Gwala said.


"We call on Mrs KaMagwaza-Msibi to do the right thing to clear her name and not to pass the buck," concluded Mr Gwala.
