Bathabile Dlamini ordered to pay up for Sassa debacle
The Constitutional Court has ruled that former Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini be personally liable for 20% of legal costs for last year's Sassa debacle.
The court ruled that because Dlamini misled the court about her role in the grants fiasco, it is only proper that she pays.
Speaking to Xolani Gwala, CEO of Freedom Under Law, Nicole Fritz, says they are delighted at the findings against Dlamini.
We are delighted at the findings that minister Bathabile Dlamini is liable for costs, we think this is a vindication of accountability which is much needed in the country at this time.Nicole Fritz, CEO of Freedom Under Law
