Former Minister Bathabile Dlamini has resigned, joining countless other ex-ministers who have opted to leave Parliament rather than to serve as ordinary members.
Former Minister of Social Development and Women in the Presidency, Bathabile Dlamini, has left Parliament.
The list of former ministers who are opting out of serving as Members of Parliament is growing at an astonishing rate, with Jeff Radebe and Siyabonga Cwele resigning yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported earlier.
In her letter of resignation, Dlamini claims that the ANC is not ready to be led by a woman and laments the debacle surrounding the payment of social grants, reports eNCA.
The former minister claims that certain politicians were vilified by the media, while others were afforded kinder coverage, especially during the social grants debacle:
"The Judgement did not suggest that I was corrupt, but I know that it is dragged so that at the end of the day it is pronounced that I was corrupt when in a number of times I took CPS to court."
