Wheelchair-bound Ambrosini takes oath

(Power 987 News, via Twitter)

Cape Town - Cancer-stricken Inkatha Freedom Party MP Mario Ambrosini was pushed in a wheelchair to take his oath of office before Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng in the National Assembly on Wednesday.

A frail looking Ambrosini lifted himself out of his wheelchair with the help of an ornate walking stick, and stood hunched over while reading the oath.

His thick Italian accent rose above the rest of his fellow IFP colleagues, including leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi, as they read the oath.

Ambrosini remained in the House, but appeared weak as he slumped in his wheelchair, looking at his cellphone.

Ambrosini has vowed to continue his fight for the use of alternative cancer therapies, including medical marijuana, during the fifth Parliament.
