Tourism Minister, Patricia de Lille, is set to meet with her Public Works and Infrastructure counterpart,
following his statement that cyber criminals have stolen R300 million from the Department over the past 10 years.

De Lille is now being trolled on social media, since she’d been the Executive Authority of DPWI for almost four years.

In a statement, released yesterday, Minister Dean Macpherson says a full-scale forensic investigation is underway, involving the Hawks, SAPS, State Security Agency and experts in the cyber security fraternity.

Tourism Ministry spokesperson, Zara Nicholson, says the Minister is known as a corruption buster, and had these allegations come to light during de Lille’s tenure, she would’ve given it the attention it deserves.
