“What we know is that Ms Thahane made a request for financial support towards her studies at the New York Film Academy directly to me as the minister, This request is similar to many others that my office and the department constantly receive from members of the public. The public does this possibly because I am the political head of the department” – Said Nathi Mthethwa.
