Opposition MPs: Mkhize can’t use sub judice rule to dodge questions
CAPE TOWN – No excuses, not even special leave, prohibits Health Minister Zweli Mkhize from appearing before Parliament.
Opposition parties say they don’t believe his stand-in, Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kuyabyi-Ngubane, is up to the task of answering questions on the department’s controversial Digital Vibes contract.
