Gauteng premier David Makhura was on Friday expected to meet sports, arts, culture and recreation MEC Faith Mazibuko, her HoD and her CFO about her tirade against them at a meeting.
In a statement released ahead of the meeting, Makhura criticised Mazibuko for her conduct, which he deemed unacceptable. "The utterances of the MEC [Mazibuko] towards the head of department and chief financial officer are totally unacceptable and inconsistent with what I expect from MECs," said Makhura.
"I would like to make the following principles categorically clear: "First, racism and sexism have no place in our society and will therefore not be tolerated in our administration. Second, we are determined to ensure that service delivery targets are met and budgets are spent in line with the annual performance plans - underspending is unacceptable.
"Third, we are uncompromising on the need for officials to follow the law and procurement procedures in line with our stated commitment to clean administration," Makhura said.
