There seems to be some respite for the Minister of Water and Sanitation Novumla Mokonyane, after the leadership of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) alleged her of indulging in financial improprieties.

The brief relief came moments after the African National Congress Women’s league (ANCWL) lambasted her accusers and detractors of falsehood. According to them:

“vicious character assassination campaign” unleashed against its member and Minister of Water and Sanitation Nomvula Mokonyane is driven by “hatred towards black women”.

The Minister who is a member of ANC National Executive Working Committee has been put on the spotlight by the opposition in the past week. Although Mokonyane has refuted the allegations leveled against her, she however noted  that she is not aware of any man benefiting secretly from the department.
