Xolani Gwala spoke to labour law expert Natasha Moni to find out what the process the panel will be following.

From the Nugent commission recommendations, they have asked that a panel be appointed.

Natasha Moni, Labour law expert

A panel of people that are apolitical, not answerable to any constituency, they inspire confidence and are people completely not connected to Sars.
