Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba could confront sanctions for his flip-slump on the Gupta naturalization matter.
On Thursday night, the Democratic Alliance tabled a movement in the National Assembly requesting Parliament’s morals board of trustees to authorize him for misdirecting the house.
Gigaba did an about turn on Wednesday after saying that Atul Gupta was not a South African citizen at a briefing just the day before.
H said he only meant to say that his brother Ajay Gupta did not hold South African citizenship.
The DA’s Haniff Hoosen said: “Appropriate action must be taken against honourable Gigaba. Further notes that this House has been plagued by misleading statement by various ministers, refers this matter to the joint committee on ethics in the members’ interest for an appropriate sanction, I so move.”
