Energy Minister Kubayi denies her secondment of Zulu to fuel fund was illegal

Energy Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi on Tuesday told MPs she had no doubt about the legality of her secondment of former director general Thabane Zulu to the Strategic Fuel Fund as its acting chief executive officer, but stopped short of assuring them it had been approved by the board of the entity. Kubayi said she would not bow to pressure from Democratic Alliance MP Gordon Mackay, who challenged her on the secondment during a meeting of Parliament’s portfolio committee on energy, to prove to the legislature that she had acted within the law.
