Mhlongo, Mr P to ask the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans

(1)Have any of the properties and/or assets of the Department of Military Veterans been repossessed in 2018; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so; (2) are the affected employees able to perform their duties at any of the departments properties; if not, are employees being paid while they are unable to perform their duties; if so, where are the employees located to enable them to perform their duties?


Question 1

A number of (movable) assets/furniture of the DMV were attached and removed in terms of a Court Order in the Z. Matunjwa matter. DMV approached Court in this regard and the property was returned within 5 days as per the order of the Court.

Question 2

The DMV (immovable) property was never repossessed. Employees continued to render a service even when the movable property was removed. They were paid as they continued to work even with fewer equipment/furniture. If an employee is not able to perform due to any repossession or attachment/removal of property, which is not his/her fault, then his/her salary may not be stopped as that person cannot be held responsible for such an event outside his/her control.
