Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba dodged accountability on the naturalisation of some members the Gupta family in Parliament on Tuesday.
He and his successor as Minister of Home Affairs, Hlengiwe Mkhize, were due to appear before the portfolio committee on Home Affairs after a meeting last week where many MP’s serving on the committee wanted them “summoned”.
In the end, they were only “invited”.
Gigaba informed the committee that he can’t make it due to “prior commitments” and Mkhize also couldn’t attend, because she is overseas.
Faith Muthambi is acting minister of Home Affairs, and she also couldn’t attend the meeting, because of “prior commitments”.
