DEPUTY President David Mabuza is unable to honour scheduled appearances in Parliament due to ill health.
This was confirmed by the Speaker of the National Assembly Thandi Modise and Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces Amos Masondo.
In a joint statement, Modise and Masondo said they have received an apology from Mabuza that he is unable to honour scheduled appearances in both Houses due to ill health.
The deputy president was scheduled to answer oral questions in the NCOP on Thursday, 24 July, and in the NA next week, on 30 July.
“The Deputy President has undertaken to avail himself to appear before both Houses, on a mutually agreed date, upon his full recovery,” they said in a statement.
The Presiding Officers have wished the deputy president a speedy recovery.
