JOHANNESBURG - Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini missed the deadline to answer 17 questions posed by the Chief Justice on the social grants crisis.

She did not make the 4pm deadline on Monday, although answers were reportedly filed electronically after 10pm.

It is unclear whether she answered all 17 questions.

Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan will appear before the Standing Committee on Public Accounts on Tuesday to answer questions about the payment of grants.
