Appointment of Brian Molefe as an MP will not take place on budget day
Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe will not be sworn in as an MP on Wednesday‚ the ANC says.
ANC parliamentary spokesperson Nonceba Mhlauli told radio station Jacaranda FM that the office of the speaker still had to confirm a date and time for the swearing-in ceremony.
The ANC caucus also had to decide which committee Molefe would serve.
"As the ANC caucus, comrade Molefe will only be deployed in a committee once he is sworn in. The caucus leadership and Molefe will sit down and decide which committee he will be best suited to serve on. The ANC in Parliament does not issue statements regarding the swearing in of MPs," Mhlauli said.
Amid speculation that Molefe will soon be moved into a Cabinet position‚ Mhlauli also confirmed that ANC MP Makhosi Khoza had been moved from the standing committee on finance to the public service and administration committee.
