Mr B Kali (Secretary) felt that the newspapers usually look the deadlines of the advert the possibility was they might had missed the deadline, and secondly when they issue advert, they sent invoice together with a copy of the newspaper.
The Chairperson said recommended that she would make a follow-up on the matter.
Mr P Mathebe (ANC) asked why the advert had not been placed on newspaper during the week.
Ms Morutoa felt the advert should be placed in most newspapers especially community newspaper as to afford rural people opportunity to respond to it.
The Chairperson felt since there were many newspaper in the country, it would be too expensive for the department to consider all of them but she would rather discuss the matter with the department to ascertain how many newspaper would the department be afforded to pay.
