Words you will hear today: Black Label Wednesday
Social Development Minster Bathabile Dlamini appeared before Parliament on Wednesday to answer questions over the grant payments system and procurement.
Yet another deadline was missed to enter into an agreement with the Post Office for the payment of social grants. Officials were sent back to the negotiating table on Tuesday.
During a grilling from MPs, the Minister had an exchange of words with the DA's John Steenhuisen, inspiring Khabazela's (Jonathan Fairbairn) word of the day, Black Label Wednesday.
BlackMonday was a protest on Monday where farm workers and farmers gathered around the country to protest farm killings.
She had a go at the DA to say you are full of Black Monday and John Steenhuisen came back and said you are full of black label.Jonathan Fairbairn, 702 producer
