JUST IN: Temba Mliswa RESIGNS!

0

Member of Parliament for Norton Temba Mliswa (Independent) has resigned from his role as the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee of Mines & Mining Development.

Mliswa said that he has decided to resign so as to allow a Privileges Committee to investigate allegations made against him in the media. Said Mliswa:

Pursuant to the media allegations against me and motion moved by Hon. Mataranykia, a Privileges Committee will be set to investigate the matter which I think is fair.

As a result&in the name of integrity, I feel it’s best for me to step down as the Chairperson of the PPC of Mines & Mining Development pending finalisation of the investigations

Whilst I’m stepping down, I hope that this won’t set a precedent that a Privileges Committee will be set up on the whim of media reports or worse still social media allegations.

Mliswa and members of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy which he chaired have been accused of demanding a $400 000 bribe from investor James Ross Goddard of JRG Contracting (Pvt) Ltd.
