Parliament's decision to hand over the running of the Department of Home Affairs to the Treasury has not come as a surprise.
Instead, the move has confirmed the long-held view by the public that the department was in shambles.
It has been the worst performing segment in government, with a dubious distinction of having never received a clean audit clearance since Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula took over. Daily bungles - including the issuing of IDs to wrong people - have been the order of the day.
