Johannesburg - David Mabuza, who last week asked to clear his name before he could take his oath as an MP, will now be sworn in on Tuesday afternoon. This will pave the way for his possible re-appointment as deputy president.
On Tuesday morning the office of ANC chief Whip in Parliament, Pemmy Majodina, confirmed Mabuza would be sworn in as MP at the Presidential Guest House in Pretoria.
"The Deputy President of the ANC, comrade David Mabuza will be sworn in as an ANC Member of Parliament today. The swearing-in ceremony will be conducted by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng," a statement from the ANC read.
Mabuza met with the integrity commission of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Friday to discuss adverse findings that had been leveled against him and 20 others.
Last Wednesday Ramaphosa and Parliament confirmed that Mabuza would not join a group of 399 other MPs to be sworn-in. Ramaphosa said Mabuza had made this request to the top six of the ANC.
