Baseless and Malicious Claims about ANC MP Mnyamezeli Booi

09 MAY 2017

ANC MP and Chairperson of the ANC Study Group on the Standing Committee on Public Accounts (SCOPA), Cde Mnyamezeli Booi is highly disturbed by the defamatory allegations by the Democratic Alliance claiming that he failed to declare remuneration received from Lurco Coal (Pty) Ltd in November 2015. In a statement issued on Tuesday 08 May, the DA claimed that Comrade Booi did not declare his involvement with this company in the 2016 Register of Members.

These allegations are not only untrue, but highly unfortunate as they seek to cast aspersions on Comrade Booi as an ANC MP and ANC Whip in SCOPA.

If the DA had done a basic fact check with Parliament's Ethics Committee before issuing such a baseless statement, they would have found that such information was declared under the Confidential Declaration of Disclosure of Members' Interest. It is quite clear that the Democratic Alliance is on a rampage to tarnish the integrity of ANC Members of Parliament. The statement by the Democratic Alliance is nothing but fake news.

Comrade Booi will seek legal advice on whether these allegations are not in violation of his personal rights and if legal recourse cannot be sought.

ISSUED BY ANC MP AND CHAIRPERSON ON THE ANC STUDY GROUP ON SCOPA, MNYAMEZELI BOOI.
