Minister Lindiwe Sisulu clarifies non-attendance in Parliament on 7 March 2018

The Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation has noted with concern misleading media reports that Hon Minister Sisulu, MP, did not offer an apology to Parliament for being unable to attend the oral question to the Peace and Security Cluster session on Wednesday, 7 March 2018.

We would like to put on record that the Minister submitted her letter of apology to the Speaker, that the letter was indeed acknowledged and on that basis of an apology the Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Hon Luwellyn Landers, MP, was allowed to respond to questions on behalf of the Minister.
