We strongly object to be led by Dr Makhosi Khoza

In a letter sent to ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu the members of the committee led by Dr Makhosi Khoza expressed their strong objections to her leadership, “owing to the irretrievable breakdown of relations between herself and ANC members of the committee”. This was revealed by ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu in a press statement.

The letter to Jackson Mthembu, signed by Zephroma Dlamini-Dubazana, Madala Ntombela, Mervyn Dirks, Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen and Regina Lesoma refers to the ANC’s rules on conduct expected of its members.

“We strongly object to be led by Dr M. Khoza as the chairperson of the committee and member of the Study Group since it is our view that she has violated the ANC rule mentioned above,” reads the letter.

“Furthermore, we as the Study Group members have taken the decision to suspend all Study Group/Portfolio Committee meetings until the conduct of Dr M. Khoza is addressed.”

Jackson Mthembu went on to say, “comrade Khoza’s continued public attacks have led to her alienating ANC members of parliament, including those in her committee, resulting in an ill-advised and out-of-line decision to boycott any activity she is involved in.

“The erosion of trust in her as a chairperson has also led to acrimonious verbal exchanges between her and members of the study group in meetings and on social media The decision to relieve her as chairperson comes after numerous failed attempts by the leadership of the organisation to council her on her behaviour.”
