The Commission is hearing Parliamentary Oversight related evidence from the former ANC MP Dr Makhosi Khoza.

Khoza says in the run-up to the August 2017 motion of no confidence in Jacob Zuma, ANC deputy chief whip told ANC MPs who wanted to vote according to their conscience, they didn’t become MPs through their conscience, but through the ANC.
At the ANC policy conference in July 2017, says Khoza, Fikile Mbalula threatened MPs who wanted to vote according to their conscience, likening them to suicide bombers. She also perceived then ANC SG Gwede Mantashe and his deputy Jessie Duarte’s presence at ANC caucus meetings (Mantashe and Duarte weren’t MPs) as intimidation.
