President suspends Deputy Minister Dipuo Peters

President Cyril Ramaphosa has, in writing, informed Deputy Minister of Small Business Development, Ms Dipuo Peters, of his decision to suspend her. 

The decision follows a sanction adopted by Parliament’s Joint Committee on Ethics and Members Interests against the Deputy Minister.

The Committee found that Ms Peters had breached the Code of Ethical Conduct in her former portfolio as Minister of Transport.

Consequently, Ms Peters was sanctioned and suspended for one term.

The suspension, which will be without pay, became effective on 28 February 2024 and will end on 28 March 2024.
