Defence and Military Veterans Minister Lindiwe Sisulu and Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale have denied that there’s a power struggle between them.
This follows media reports that a public spat erupted between the ministers, with Sisulu saying Sexwale had failed to come up with new programmes and have been claiming credit for initiatives she introduced while still housing minister.
It has been reported also that Sisulu said Sexwale has not launched a single project since he took over the portfolio.
But in a joint statement the two departments said the ministers have a great working relationship and continued to consult each other on matters of governance.
