Dlamini, Ms L to ask the Minister of Environmental Affairs
(1)Whether she has been informed that she has been implicated in testimony made under oath and in written documents by Mr Agrizzi at the Judicial Commission of Inquiry to Inquire into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector including Organs of State, chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo; if so, were the allegations made by Mr Agrizzi in respect of her true; (2) whether she declared any financial or material gifts from Bosasa as required by the Executive Members’ Ethics Act, Act 82 of 1998; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?
(1) The Honourable Member would be aware that the question he is asking is already in the public domain including the communication between my lawyers and the Judicial Commission of Inquiry c haired by Deputy Chief Justice Zondo. The Commission has also been on record to advise that the individuals who are somehow implicated by certain witnesses at the said inquiry would also be given an opportunity to testify and or to give their own account of events. The Honuorable Member is therefore advised to be patient until that particular opportunity surfaces.
(2) This particular question is also likely to form part of the evidence at the said inquiry.
