The DA wants to know why Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Sicelo Shiceka is not back at work.
Shiceka was sent on sick leave in February for an undisclosed illness.
But he is quoted as saying he has been playing tennis and travelling overseas.
The Minister also says he is ready to return to work but can only do so when the Public Protector’s report on the allegations of misconduct against him is received.
The DA’s James Lorimer wants to know why this has become a condition of Shiceka’s return to work, while he is earning a salary of over R100 000 per month.
