Veteran actress and activist Florence Masebe has called out sport, arts and culture minister Nathi Mthethwa over his explanation regarding the “mismanagement” of R300m.
The funds were earmarked to relieve the plight of artists and creatives during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Florence has engaged with various artists and arts industry contributors on her TL in an attempt to understand Mthethwa’s explanation of the mismanaged funds which the minister gave at a press briefing on Monday.
The minister said the money is not missing, people over committed the funds given to them and R300m is still there.
Instead the minister said the money was over committed, explaining there were artists who were paid double, while some were paid more than what they were supposed to get.
