Committee agrees to give Gordhan another chance to appear before them

Members of Parliament’s Public Enterprises Committee have agreed to give the Minister Pravin Gordhan another chance to appear before them.

Gordhan was scheduled to respond to the former Director-General Kgathatso Tlhakudi’s allegations that the minister was involved in the formation of the consortium that won the bid to buy 51% of South African Airways.

Gordhan sent a letter to the committee saying a doctor had advised him not to fly.

The Committee chairperson Khaya Magaxa says they are disappointment at Gordhan’s failure to appear before the committee .

Magaxa says, “There’s one thing that we cannot avoid, if we follow the process objectively, we were supposed to be done with this matter a long time ago and the minister has been responsible for this delay. Therefore suspicions are wrong as they they are unjustifiable in this instance.”
