Johannesburg - Outspoken African National Congress (ANC) MP, Makhosi Khoza, on Thursday said that she was not intimidated by the the KwaZulu-Natal provincial executive committee's decision not to withdraw a disciplinary hearing against her.
"They said they are going ahead with charging me‚ irrespective of the fact that they are illegitimate. On Sunday they are expecting me to appear, but I am still consulting with my lawyers and I don't have any more comments on that," Khoza said.
Speaking on the sidelines of the third annual Southern African Metals and Engineering Indaba, Khoza said she believed that the country deserved better leaders who would be brave enough to tackle societal problems head-on.
"I honestly don't believe that if you are a coward you can lead other people. And I believe that we have had too many people who are cowards and who are very fearful. We now need to step up. If there is one thing that nobody can do is to intimidate me, I'm not intimidatable (sic)."
This comes as the disciplinary hearing against Khoza by the embattled ANC KZN was postponed last weekend to next Sunday after she did not pitch, citing death threats against her.
