Parliament demands answers from a Cabinet Minister who is embroiled in a R37 Million scandal

Aunt Pat, probably one of the most loved women in politics due to her transparency and honesty, seems not to be honest afterall. This is according to scopa Chairperson Mkhuleko Hlengwa

Speaking on Tuesday, Hlengwa said that until proper action was taken against de Lille and her department, the fence would continue to be a dark cloud hanging over Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille and the department.

Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille has received yet another rebuke from frustrated parliamentarians for failing to take appropriate action on the Beit Bridge border fence saga.

The fence was elected last year following the outbreak of coronavirus to prevent illegal crossing of foreign nationals through the Limpopo-based border.

The fence was destroyed before its completion and was never completed. it is not known where the funds ended up and what the company which was awarded the tender to complete this did with the money paid.

De Lille however has always maintained her innocence on the matter, saying that the tender awarding was above board.
