Portfolio Committee Chair Nominees

Portfolio Committee Chair Nominees

Guest: EWN Parliamentary Correspondent Gaye Davis.

(ANC) chief whip Pemmy Majodina has defended the decision to put forward the names
of some ANC members tainted by allegations of wrongdoing and state capture for positions as chairpersons and whips of parliamentary oversight committees. The ANC’s nominees include MPs such as Faith Muthambi, Mosebenzi Zwane and Supra Mahumapelo.

Bongani Bongo, who was accused by the evidence leader of Parliament’s inquiry into
state capture at Eskom of trying to bribe him is also on the list, as is Tina Joemat-
Pettersson and former deputy finance minister Sfiso Buthelezi.

The list was announced on Wednesday afternoon by ANC secretary-general Ace
Magashule after some delays, after Cosatu insisted that alliance partners be consulted
and be allowed to propose names.

Asked about the caliber of some of the ANC members up for the posts, Majodina had
this to say: "There were allegations [against] certain members. There was a process
where most of them appeared before [the ANC’s] integrity commission and they were
cleared."
