Zwane fails to pitch before portfolio committee yet again

Minister of Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane was on Wednesday expected to meet with the Mineral Resources Portfolio Committee in Parliament, but he did not show up.

Zwane was supposed to appear before Members of Parliament to account for his actions, as he is amongst those accused of state capture.

Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Mineral Resources, Sahlulele Luzipho says Zwane did provide reasons for his failure to appear before the committee.

This is not the first time that Zwane has failed to appear before the committee.

Luzipho says Parliament has resolved to institute its own commission of inquiry into state capture and Zwane's involvement.

It is Members of Parliament who said they have not exhausted their questions so Members were of the view that rather than continuing with the questions they are saying they've not exhausted, the process of inquiry will give us an opportunity to still ask those questions.

On those basis they then said they resolve on the inquiry which will then be able to deal with the question or the matter demanded by Parliament.
