Committee chairperson Mkhuleko Hlengwa said that the suspension of the complainant, ANC MP Mervyn Dirks, was immaterial because the committee had already started its internal process, and members intended to exercise their right to summon anyone to appear before the committee in its execution of oversight work on public expenditure.

He said a session was due to be held on Friday, but it could not go ahead, according to the presiding officers of the National Assembly, due to the unavailability of MPs who were involved in constituency work.
