Ministers Dlamini-Zuma And Sisulu Lead Charge Against Discipline In Phala Phala Vote


News24 reports that "the ANC's caucus heard firm opposition to a decision that it's members of Parliament should not vote to adopt the Section 89 panel report on Tuesday," with Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu leading the charge against discipline in the upcoming parliamentary vote on the Section 89 panel report.
