parliamentANA reports that Parliament’s Select Committee on Economic and Business Development on Tuesday said it was shocked and angered by claims that a farmer gave his workers “rotten meat” while feeding his caged lions with fresh chunks.  

“This behaviour of the concerned farmer needs to be condemned strongly and discouraged. Farmers should not conduct themselves in a manner that perpetuates anger and polarisation among our people along racial lines,” committee chairperson Mandla Rayi said.  He indicated that the committee, which is conducting an oversight visit in the Free State, would raise the matter at its meeting with the Department of Labour.
