In a statement issued on Thursday, Mazibuko denied that her instructions to senior managers in the department were illegal.
"I wish to reiterate that at no stage did I give unlawful instructions to senior managers in the department except to stress the importance of achieving performance targets of the department and fulfilling promises made to communities as part of service delivery agreements and that this should be carried out within the prescripts of the law," she said.
And now she is going to deal with them, I hope for their sake they don't think this is the end of it.Gauteng MEC Faith Mazibuko offers apology to her staff over rant – 'I became emotional'
Not accepted. She should be fired. She should go sit in a shack and look for a job. This will be good for her to see what the average South African is facing every day.
True. And her tone was like broken window glass on a corrugated iron conveyor belt.Her tone is one of the last things she should be apologizing for, she did not address the racism the mixing of state and party lines, the possible unfair labour practices her hatred of English. calling tax payers/government money hers seemed strange.
Hardly... They arent even vaguely worried about the illegal behaviour at all... just the fact that it is in the public and that they are embarrassed."We have already called her to explain her utterances. We find them unfortunate, irresponsible and embarrassing," said Khawe.
Yeah, I agree it's for show - I'm just surprised that they're acknowledging that there may be a slight problem.Hardly... They arent even vaguely worried about the illegal behaviour at all... just the fact that it is in the public and that they are embarrassed.
Close to the elections... that is the only reason.
They must be truly desperate to say this.He also said the ANC wanted to apologise to Gauteng residents, whites and Indians in particular, explaining that the party believed Mazibuko knew her actions were in the wrong
