The Parliamentary legal department has come under fire for referring to 800-metre champion Caster Semenya as a man.
A poor quality document for the Sport Portfolio Committee revealed several grammatical mistakes.
Amongst those mistake was a reference to the gender testing of “Mr C Semenye.”
Committee members announced last week that they intended to summon South African Sports Confederation Olympic Committee President, Gideon Sam, to brief members on the handling of Semenya’s gender scandal and the mismanagement of Athletics South Africa.
