The ANC has announced that Nomvula Mokonyane will be redeployed to its head office at Luthuli House in Johannesburg. She has requested that her name be withdrawn from the list of those being sworn in as Members of Parliament (MP) earlier today.
The party says Mokonyane has asked to no longer be deployed to Parliament due to family responsibilities and her being in mourning. It was announced on Monday that she would become the new House Chairperson.
Meanwhile, Deputy President David Mabuza requested that his swearing in be postponed until allegations against him have been dealt with, within the party’s Integrity Commission.
The ANC says the postponement of the swearing-in of the party’s Mabuza as an MP is not linked to whether or not he will be part of the next Cabinet.
Earlier, MPs were sworn in at the National Assembly.
