Cape Town - Members of the Public Enterprises Committee on Wednesday called for a motion of confidence in advocate Ntuthuzelo Vanara who is currently the evidence leader of Parliament’s inquiry into state capture at Eskom.
Zukile Luyenge (ANC) said he was perturbed about the attacks on Vanara during the previous day’s events.
This follows after Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown and her deputy Ben Martins raised concerns about the manner in which the inquiry is being conducted.
Brown said in a statement issued on Tuesday that she had written three letters regarding the inquiry, raising procedural issues‚ such as that the evidence leader has a “conflicted role".
She further said Vanara had allowed testimony implicating people without advising those people that would be implicated‚ thereby "violating their human dignity".
Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan, also an ANC committee member, seconded Luyenge’s stance, saying the committee should “formally move and adopt a motion of confidence” in Vanara as evidence leader.
