Perjury accused Bathabile Dlamini hospitalised with Covid-19

Johannesburg – African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) member Bathabile Dlamini has been admitted to hospital with Covid-19.

The president of the ANC Women’s League is receiving medical attention at an undisclosed health facility.

News of her hospitalisation came just hours after the director of public prosecutions in Gauteng confirmed that she would be prosecuted for perjury during her time as minister of Social Development.

The ANC has confirmed in a short statement that Dlamini was in hospital with Covid-19.

The party applauded her for her “courage” and determination to beat the virus.

The ANC is also calling on the country to show “compassion and solidarity” with those who had Covid-19 and continue to follow the non-pharmaceutical interventions.

Dlamini made headlines on Tuesday when it emerged that she would be facing perjury charges relating to her testimony during an inquiry into her role in the social grant crisis.
