The Democratic Alliance has called out the Department of Social Development after the Department returned R1.4 billion in unspent funds to the treasury which could have been used for the poor.

The DA’s Lindy Wilson says for some time the DA has been trying to get information as to expenditure on foreign travel and have submitted several written questions to Minister Dlamini, but these questions remain unanswered.

Wilson explained that the DA will approach the standing committee on Public Accounts to investigate this complete misuse of public funds, which should have been used to alleviate poverty and uplift the poor in South Africa.

“The minister must account for the failings within her department and DA will continue to fight for those most vulnerable in our society abandoned by the DSD.” Wilson said.
