Gigaba called to account in Parliament over OR Tambo private terminal matter

Home affairs minister Malusi Gigaba will be called to account in Parliament next week to “clarify the department’s view on the granting of permission for the operation of a private terminal at OR Tambo International Airport”.

In a statement issued on behalf of the portfolio committee on home affairs‚ chair Hlomani Chauke said that recent events – including a ruling by the Constitutional Court on Thursday denying Gigaba’s application for leave to appeal against a court ruling that he had lied under oath in the OR Tambo matter – called into question “the admissibility of information that the department has previously put before the committee”.

Apart from Thursday’s ruling‚ this week the Public Protector released a report on Wednesday also saying that Gigaba had lied under oath. In the days prior to that‚ Gigaba was attacked in Parliament over the private OR Tambo terminal matter.
