There has been extensive research done under the auspices of the Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) appointed by Cabinet which was chaired by Deputy President Mabuza during the fourth administration. In the aftermath of the reconstitution of Cabinet in the fifth administration, the work undertaken by the IMC has been assigned to me as the Minister by the Cabinet.
I have received a detailed briefing on the work which was undertaken under the auspieces of the IMC thus far and I have been alerted to certain aspects of the work where research is still on-going. We hope to complete the remaining research soon after which I will submit the report and recommendations to Cabinet.
There will also be consultation with the Judiciary as part of this process and I have already engaged Chief Justice Mogoeng in this regard.
