Democratic Alliance Shadow Minister of Communications Marian Shinn said the Department of Communications 2012/13 Annual Report tabled in Parliament today reveals how under the leadership of the former Minister of Communications, Dina Pule, the department was grossly mismanaged.

Vacancies were not filled within 12 months as required by Public Service Regulations.

Shinn said 46% of total planned targets were not achieved; Vacancies were not filled within 12 months as required by Public Service Regulations; Payments to suppliers were not made within 30 days as required by National Treasury Regulations; Appointments were made in posts which were not approved or funded;

She also said employees were appointed without following processes to verify claims made in applications.

The new Minister of Communications, Yunus Carrim, has undertaken to ensure that Departmental oversight is improved.

Shinn added that the DA will request that he appear in Parliament to present a turnaround plan for the Department for scrutiny.
