Mpambo-Sibhukwana, Ms T to ask the Minister of Social Development
What (a) number of her department’s food parcels has she found was distributed in furtherance of a party political objective or other purposes instead of the intended purposes of disaster relief related to the national lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19 and (b) action does she intend to take in this regard?
a) To my knowledge there were no food parcels that were distributed in furtherance of a party political objective. Still, to my knowledge all the food that was distributed by the Department was targeted at addressing the intended purpose of disaster relief that is related to the national lockdown to curb the spread of CoVID-19.
b) As a result, there is no action necessary because no Departmental food parcels were distributed in furtherance of political party objectives.
