The chairperson of a committee set up to determine Vusi Pikoli’s fate says the advocate will have an opportunity to make submissions before the body.

The ad hoc committee, which is made up of ANC and opposition members of Parliament, is expected to wrap up its work on 10 February.

It was constituted to consider and advise Parliament on whether President Kgalema Motlanthe’s decision to fire the head of the National Prosecuting Authority was correct.

Chairperson Oupa Monareng says that Pikoli and his team will have ample opportunity to have their say.

ANC Chief Whip Mnyamezeli Booi adds that the committee members have a tough task ahead of them.

“Parliament has never been faced with this kind of questionary committee that has to be set up. I want to use everything that we have. Never have we been prepared for it, and the country will be watching,” says Booi.
