The Democratic Alliance will report to the
Public Protector, allegations that the
South African Social Security Agency has spent R10 million of public money on
VIP protection for its Chief Executive Officer Virginia Petersen and the
spokesperson of the Department of Social
Development Lumka Oliphant.
DAs Mike Waters said they believe the tender regulation was flouted .
“This is a slap in the face for the poor who
the department of social development are supposed to benefit.” Said Waters
Waters concluded that if the R10 million had
been spent on child support grant, two
thousand children would have received child support grants for a year and this
would have been a direct investment for the poor of South Africa as opposed to
wasteful expenditure for VIP security
