Nkosazana Zuma's evil shadow

The company that distributes millions of state social security grants has not only the government but all South Africa hanging from a cliff - all because the Minister of Social Development and Zuma favourite, Bathabile Dlamini, has been lying to Parliament for the past year.

Over the past year Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), a subsidiary of the US-based Net1 Group was responsible for distributing R130 billion (close on R11bn a month) on behalf of the state to 17 million South Africans – 30% of the population – who are dependent on the grants for their survival.

I hope the DA and/or EFF drag the Minister and CPS to the Constitutional Court on 1st April when the new "contract" kicks in. She should be held personally responsible for all the extra ATM fees and the R1.25 billion increase. She can pay it out of her pension.

After such flagrant stonewalling/ disregard for the Constitutional Court's ruling, shouldn't Bathabile Dlamini be jailed for 'contempt of court'? Or are some more equal than others?
