The African National Congress has reacted to media allegations stating that the Home Affairs Minister undermined the Home Affairs Portfolio Committee by not attending a scheduled meeting.

In a press statement the ANC says that the meeting which was held on the 9th of October 2007 the Minister had indicated in writing in advance that she would not be able to attend the meeting as she would be out of the country on that date.

To this letter the parliamentary committee then responded that the meeting would continue and would be lead by the Director-General from the department.

“ANC parliamentary caucus wish to correct wrong claims in the media that Minister of Home Affairs undermined the portfolio committee for not attending the meeting, all parties accepted the impression created and that it was not the intention for the media to report on it the way it had reported,” says head of media at the ANC parliamentary caucus Moloto Mothapo
