ANC members of Parliament will this weekend visit several provinces to interact with communities on the Protection of State Information Bill.

Cosatu, the opposition and advocacy groups have criticised the party for not holding consultation sessions on the so-called Secrecy Bill as promised.

The ruling party says the weekend’s interaction is part of its continuous engagement with various stakeholders on the draft legislation.

The party’s chief whip Mathole Motshekga says in a statement that the aim of the exercise is to explain the Bill to communities and obtain their views.
