As I have indicated, we continue to work with all departments. I am very concerned about the fact that children in the Eastern Cape have not been provided with the programme and meals for a number of months. I am personally going to the Eastern Cape next week in order to ensure, as we begin the implementation following the investigation, that indeed the situation is addressed adequately.
The forensic report is the property of the provincial executive of the Eastern Cape, and I am sure the education standing committee in the province would probably have the report tabled before them and at that time I am certain it would be released. I shall, I am sure, advise the member to put his request to the DA representatives in the Eastern Cape legislature. I don't see the need for the intervention, which would be a section 100 one, given that the investigation was at the instance of the provincial government. I believe they will deal with it there.
My own is to ensure that funds are utilised appropriately. They are a conditional grant; you are able to stop them. We did when the intervention by the premier occurred. We continue to work together to ensure that the scheme which we will develop following this process is indeed implemented better than has been in the past. The investigation has also involved suspension of officials and so on. I am sure you are aware there are various procedures. Therefore, to demand public domain access immediately, I think, may infringe upon those processes.
Nevertheless, I do invite the member to put the request to the provincial legislature through the DA representatives there.
