Is it listeriosis? Is there something in the water? What is the illness that is plaguing Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba and former South African Airways (SAA) board chairperson Dudu Myeni?
Both missed appointments with parliament this week claiming they were ill.
Myeni informed parliament’s public enterprises committee on Wednesday that she would not appear because she could not fly to Cape Town for medical reasons. Inquiry chairperson Zukiswa Rantho said she could not share the details of Myeni’s illness in public. She said, however, that Myeni had told her she could not fly or travel long distances.
Myeni asked to make written submissions to the committee. The committee rejected Myeni’s excuse and proposal and insisted that she physically appear before the committee.
