Mr Chairperson, in the previous financial year the budget of the Department of Public Works was decreased to R7,8 billion, yet the department still underspent. Furthermore, by the end of the first quarter of this financial year, the department had spent only 19% of its budget. This is largely due to underspending on infrastructure.
With this proven inability to spend, mostly because of a lack of technically skilled people, Minister Nxesi, how did you manage to miraculously spend more than R200 million on one person's private palace at Nkandla? [Applause.]
