NGO in State Food Security Programme Controversy

President Zuma coaxes government departments into committing nearly R900 million to a programme run by a NGO he chairs and which is run by his cousin, according to a newspaper report

According to an article by Carien du Plessis and Yolandi Groenewald, President Jacob Zuma has coaxed government departments into committing nearly R900 million to a programme run by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) he chairs and which is run by his cousin.

They say a multimillion-rand state food security programme, set to be approved by Cabinet later this month, has in effect been subcontracted to the Masibambisane Rural Development Initiative, a private NGO chaired by Zuma and run by Deebo Mzobe.

If the report is anything to go by, the organisation will coordinate the campaign on behalf of government.
