The SABC spokesman confirmed that the Department of Social Development, and, in particular, Bathabile Dlamini, pay R500 000 for a “Talk show” on which Dlamini and her spokesperson, Lumka Oliphant, appeared.

According to SABC principles, such interviews do not “sell” and the payment is therefore irregular.

Political analysts regard the action as a waste of state money and say that Dlamini should be held personally responsible for repayment.

The interview was conducted just before the ANC leadership election and was clearly aimed at promoting Dhlamini’s image and that of the ANC.
