Dirco Minister Naledi Pandor has hammered the venture as an 'humiliation', after R118 million was paid for land that doesn't exist.

This follows the finish of the disciplinary argument established against him identified with sporadic use brought about by the division on a fruitless task to buy a real estate parcel in New York (USA) to oblige South Africa's Permanent Mission to the United Nations and New York Consulate, said the office in an assertion.
Dirco's bungled R118 million New York project an 'humiliation' – Pandor
In October last year not really settled the real estate parcel intended to house South Africa's representatives didn't exist, following a reality discovering mission to New York, completed by MPs in December 2019.
Reports revealed at the time that the R118 million paid for the land was paid based on "a deception to the division the bequest specialist had purchased land to fabricate a reasonable and manageable place of business".
Dirco Minister Naledi Pandor has since hammered the bombed project as an "shame".

'Everybody connected to Dirco's New York land embarrassment should be terminated', says DA
In an assertion, the Democratic Alliance (DA) recognized the choice, and furthermore requested that Ramashau and other senior authorities who were firmly connected to the New York Pilot Project embarrassment, face a similar destiny as Mohoai.
It further requested that President Cyril Ramaphosa suspend Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, under whose watch this New York Pilot Project was started.
"After the new uproars, South Africa can't bear the cost of any further humiliation because of this embarrassment. Assuming the President is not kidding about uncovering debasement, he should put the interest of South Africa in front of his bad companions," said the party.
