The chairman of Parliament's sports portfolio committee, Butana Komphela, has vowed to ensure that Dr Harold Adams, the doctor for the South African team at the world athletics championships in Berlin, is removed as one of President Jacob Zuma's doctors.
Komphela made the threat after Athletics South Africa (ASA) appeared before the portfolio committee to explain its handling of the Caster Semenya sex-testing controversy.
Adams arranged the initial gender tests on Semenya and later cautioned the athletics body against letting Semenya race after obtaining results of the tests which allegedly showed that the 800m athlete had three times more testosterone than a normal female.
Adams, who is also the president of Boland Athletics, has now called on the ASA leadership to quit over its handling of the Semenya affair.
But Komphela slammed Adams's role in the saga, accusing him of having been responsible for leaking Semenya's test results to the media.
