Dlamini’s accusation that the ANC was running the third sphere of government to the ground by appointing Van Rooyen for the task led to a heated exchange between the Dlamini and deputy house speaker Lechesa Tsenoli, who asked him to withdraw his statement.

Dlamini said: “You know, minister, what is clear now is that the municipalities are mismanaged especially under the ANC government … especially under this current useless minister called Mister Des.”
