Committee hears a report on the Travelgate saga
A multi party committee of parliament made up of the presiding officers and whips has heard a report on the state of the so-called Travelgate saga, and has pronounced itself satisfied. At least, said the chairman of the National Council of Provinces, Johannes Mahlangu, there were no complaints. Vusi Pikoli, the head of the prosecuting authority, told parliament that thirty people will face the court on July 31, 23 sitting and former MP’s and seven travel agents. He said that the authority is confident that they have a strong enough case to convict all of them.
