ANC picks tainted MPs to run committees
Controversial Zuma-era ministers such Mosebenzi Zwane, Faith Muthambi and Bongani Bongo are on the list
Former ministers accused of corruption and state capture Mosebenzi Zwane and Faith Muthambi are among those nominated to head portfolio committees in parliament.
The ANC on Wednesday released its list of nominees, which was littered with MPs tainted by allegations of wrongdoing. The presence of controversial figures linked with some of the excesses of the Jacob Zuma presidency may undermine President Cyril Ramaphosa’s “new dawn” narrative, as the committees provide an integral oversight role for government activities, policies and spending priorities.
