Jackson Mthembu: ANC MPs are not conspiring against Gigaba
Mthembu has dismissed Malusi Gigaba’s assertion that committees of Parliament are part of a sinister agenda against him.
Mthembu has briefed the media following a special caucus meeting on Tuesday that was addressed by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The embattled Home Affairs Minister this week accused Parliament's portfolio committee on public enterprises of joining a “well-orchestrated political campaign” to vilify him.
Mthembu has dismissed Gigaba’s assertion that committees of Parliament are part of a sinister agenda against him.
“The committees of Parliament are not part of any plot, we want to make that clear. We do our work without any fear or favour and nobody has brought has such insinuation before the chief whip.”
Gigaba’s accusation came after a week of negative media reports about his personal life and a Constitutional Court ruling that he lied under oath.
Mthembu says the party’s MPs and the various committees are merely fulfilling their responsibilities to hold members of the executive to account.
