Port Elizabeth - The R1.2 million fraud case against Portia “Pankie” Sizani, wife of former African National Congress (ANC) chief whip in Parliament Stone Sizane, was on Friday once again postponed in the Port Elizabeth Commercial Crimes Court.
Sizani faces charges of fraud and money laundering but was not at court for proceedings.
The matter was postponed pending a decision from the Grahamstown High Court around the ruling made by Magistrate Mputumi Mpofu to dismiss a recusal application brought by Sizani's defence team.
Following the recusal dismissal, defence advocate Johan Wessels filed papers for a review at the Grahamstown High Court.
At the time, they said that Mpofu could be biased as his wife worked for the education department.
