Claims that committees are compromised is ‘utter nonsense’, says Faith Muthambi
Muthambi has faced accusations of lying to parliament
Faith Muthambi, the newly elected chair of the co-operative governance and traditional affairs portfolio committee, has rubbished suggestions that Jacob Zuma-era ministers have been deployed to strategic positions in the national assembly to frustrate President Cyril Ramaphosa’s clean-up campaign.
On Tuesday, the ANC used its majority to elect controversial former ministers to lead various committees in parliament. Muthambi has been implicated in allegations of state capture, allegedly flouted public service regulations, and has previously been accused of lying to parliament.
