PRESS RELEASE: UDM Women says Minister Xingwana is an embarrassment
Our Minister of Women, Children and People with Disabilities finds herself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
The United Democratic Women's Organisation (UDEMWO) has been asking question about alleged corruption and mismanagement in her office and yesterday she embarrassed South Africans with her generalisations on Australian
It seems the Minister has difficulty controlling what comes out of her mouth and we also remember Minister Xingwana allegedly 'behaving like a child', as a fellow passenger put it on that fateful flight from Accra in 2012.
Although the Minister has now apologised, she sounds contrived and the only reason she has apologised is that she was forced to and not because she was genuinely remorseful.
UDEMWO believes that this ministry is necessary to facilitate and give expression to the provisions of the Constitution to promote equality in our society, but we want Mrs Xingwana to pack her bags of her own volition, or President Zuma must show her the door, so that someone capable can properly take the reigns of this Department.
