Nhlanhla Nene resigns as MP
The African National Congress chief whip's office in Parliament has confirmed that they received a letter from Former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene, indicating his resignation as MP.
This follows Nene's decision to step down as minister two weeks after a testimony he gave at the state capture inquiry, admitting to having lied about meeting members of the Gupta family during his previous stint as minister.
He admitted to having met the controversial brothers several times between 2009 and 2014.
