Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) National Spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has indirectly requested the Parliament’s Ad Hoc Committee conducting the SABC inquiry to shy away from using Parliament lawyers for the court battle of Friday.
The Ad hoc committee earlier on Tuesday held a preparatory meeting for the SABC inquiry.
It was during the meeting that Ndlozi said he doesn’t “trust parliament lawyers” as he has emerged victorious over them a number of times.
“Personally you know I don’t trust Parliament lawyers, well I have beaten them a lot in court, I don’t want to be beaten this time on Friday, I have to win,” said Ndlozi.
He added: “I’m always part of the winning team”.
The ad hoc committee is set to battle a court interdict application brought by the remaining SABC Board member, Chair Professor Mbulaheni Maguvhe.
Maguvhe wants Parliament’s Ad Hoc Committee to be “disqualified and reconstituted” from conducting the inquiry.
He wants the court order to instruct that the committee on the SABC should be suspended and prohibited from continuing to perform the inquiry.
Last month the SABC board was summoned to account for its controversial appointment of former Chief Operations Officer (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng to Group Executive of Corporate Affairs.
Following the meeting, the portfolio committee resolved to institute an inquiry into the fitness of the broadcaster’s board.
The ad hoc committee is now set to resume their inquiry next week.
