ANC deputy president David Mabuza has been sworn in as an MP at the presidential guesthouse.
Last week Mabuza postponed his swearing-in, saying he wanted to first clear his name after the party’s integrity commission recommended that he and other ANC members be removed from the party’s candidate list to Parliament over various offences.
Joanne Joseph spoke to political analyst Lukhona Mnguni about the latest developments.
