EFF’s Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s husband to debut as MP of rival party

David Skosana, husband of former Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane, has been named as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the MK Party. The secretary of parliament received the list of 400 designated MPs from 18 parties to be represented in the National Assembly on Thursday.

Mkhwebane, who has served as an EFF MP since October last year, is set to return to parliament for the EFF. Her husband, Skosana, will be making his debut as an MP.

While Skosana’s political ambitions have been largely unknown until now, it has been confirmed that he joined former president Jacob Zuma’s newly formed MK Party.

Meanwhile, the MK Party will have to stick with its expelled former leader Jabulani Khumalo for a least a year before he can be removed as member of parliament (MP).

Xolile George, secretary of parliament, said according to their rules, the final party list submitted to parliament by the IEC does not get amended for a year after the first sitting of parliament post elections.

On Thursday, IEC chief electoral officer Sy Mamabolo handed over the list to Chief Justice Raymond Zondo in a ceremony held at the Constitutional Court in Braamfontein
