The minister for communications and digital technologies, Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams is back at work after serving her suspension.

Ndabeni-Abrahams was suspended by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 8 April 2020 after she was found to have contravened the government’s lockdown regulations.

“Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams is back at work,” Mish Molakeng told TechFinancials on Tuesday.

She was placed on special leave for two months – one month of which would be unpaid, after a photo of her having lunch with the former deputy minister of higher education Mduduzi Manana at his home during the lockdown.

She also paid admission of a guilty fine of R1,000 after being charged with contravention of regulation 11 B of the Disaster Management Act.

The minister now has a criminal record.

Jackson Mthembu, a minister in the presidency, has been acting in Ndabeni-Abrahams place during her suspension.
