Residents of eThekwini in KwaZulu-Natal express concerns during public hearings about the General Intelligence Laws Amendment Bill, asserting that it grants excessive power to the minister in the Presidency. The bill aims to establish the South African Intelligence Agency, focusing domestically on counter-intelligence and intelligence-gathering functions. Chairperson of Parliament’s ad hoc committee on the bill, Jerome Maake, notes that residents also highlight issues with vague definitions in the legislation, prompting a closer examination of the proposed amendments.
