By The Presidency of the Republic of South Africa

President Cyril Ramaphosa will tomorrow, Thursday 30 March 2023, engage with the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) on the Social Relief Grant, the impact of load shedding on service delivery, greylisting of South Africa by the international Financial Action Task Force, and the configuration of the National Executive.

The President will address these matters in his response to Questions for Oral Reply submitted by Members of the NCOP.

Among the issues raised by members are the professionalisation of the public sector and challenges associated with red tape among provinces.

Details of the interaction are as follows:
Date: Thursday, 30 March 2023
