She was sentenced on Friday morning.

This comes after Magistrate Betty Khumalo found Dlamini guilty of perjury for lying under oath during a 2017 inquiry into the social grants debacle at the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa), which left millions of beneficiaries unsure about whether they would receive their money.

Dlamini’s lawyer, who previously argued for a lenient sentence, told the court that his client would be able to pay R20,000 of the fine on Friday.

Magistrate Khumalo has ruled that the rest of the fine must be paid no later than 29 April, failing which there would be adverse consequences.

Her lawyer pleaded with the court for Dlamini to remain on a warning and not be taken into police custody.

Khumalo has granted the request.
