Former Eskom CEO, Brian Molefe, was not sworn in yesterday as expected because Parliamentary presiding officers had not set the date.
According to political analyst Karima Brown, two Members of Parliament were sworn in.
The controversy around Molefe's appointment as MP in the North West continues as three different ANC branches claimed to have him as a member, including Tshwane and Hartbeespoort in the North West.
