Monday was set to be the last day of the arbitration but it has been extended to hear Mahlangu and other top officials.

The lawyers for former Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu have confirmed to the Life Esidimeni arbitration process that she will be available to testify next January.

Monday was set to be the last day of the arbitration but it has been extended, as former director of mental health in Gauteng Makgabo Manamela and HOD Dr Barney Selebano have also been summoned.

The three have been identified by retired Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke as “the most important,” so that families will be given closure.

Eyewitness News (EWN) reporter Masego Rahlaga has more on the development.

The matter about them giving testimony and being subpoenaed was discussed today. Manamela was supposed to testify today but Section 27 realised that they put the wrong date on the subpoena, so they have decided that they will try for November, and the latest December.

Former MEC Qedani Mahlangu told the state representative in the arbitration through her lawyer that she will only be available to testify between the 29th and 31st of January next year.

Meanwhile, the Mail & Guardian's Bhekisisa says it is following up on a number of leads to establish where the former MEC is, after confirmation that she is not studying at the London School of Economics.

Earlier, the City Press said anonymous sources claimed she was studying at the institution.

Health News Editor, Laura Lopez Gonzalez says this is not true.

City Press report sites anonymous sources so it has never been directly linked to her or the state, so it's hard to know where that information came from .
