Mabuza also declined to respond to a question from Mbuyiseni Ndlozi of the EFF, who asked him if he received any private funding for the ANC deputy presidency in the run- up to the party’s elective conference at Nasrec last year.
This comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa revealed last week that his bid for the ANC presidency had been partly funded by a controversial government service provider, Bosasa, to the tune of R500,000 — but that it happened without his knowledge.
Mabuza said Ndlozi’s question was not relevant to the topics under discussion.
“Your question is a new question and I don’t think it’s relevant. If you insist on the question put it [in writing]. If it’s agreed to by your programming committee, I will be duty-bound to answer.
“But this time it’s regarded as a new question and it involves the ANC. I’m not the treasurer, I am not the spokesperson of the ANC, but if you insist on the question put it in writing.”
