The newly appointed Social Welfare Minister gave the NSSA board an ultimatum to restore order at the scandal-ridden entity in 2 weeks, The Standard reports.
Paul Mavima has since written to the board asking for a progress report on the things he wanted to be normalised since the ultimatum he gave them expired, the board has reportedly asked for more time.
According to the publication:
The minister’s intervention followed the board’s failure to deal with a brewing labour crisis involving the suspension of 24 managers, which insiders said had the potential to drain thousands of dollars from NSSA in legal fees.
The Minister has since refused to give the NSSA board and extension and told them they had to have their house in order by year-end. The new Minister reportedly also asked for the board’s CVs.
