Geneva ‘jol’ will cost SA taxpayers millions
Cyril Ramaphosa is leading the delegation to the 12-day International Labour Organisation conference in Switzerland
Taxpayers have forked out millions of rand to send a delegation of more than 50 people, which includes President Cyril Ramaphosa, to a 12-day International Labour Organisation (ILO) conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
Business Day understands that the delegation is among the largest at the gathering and will include officials from the newly reconfigured employment & labour department and other stakeholders, such as trade unions. The department paid for air tickets, hotel accommodation, transport and cash allowances payable on international trips, according to those familiar with the details.
