SUSPENDS MSOMI

STATEMENT ISSUED BY DR GERHARD KOORNHOF, MP
UDM SPOKESPERSON FOR PUBLIC ACCOUNTS

The UDM welcomes the belated announcement of the IFP that it has suspended its parliamentarian, former Public Enterprises Committee Chair Mandla Msomi, for receiving two discounted vehicles from the disgraced arms dealer Michael Woerfel who also supplied Tony Yengeni with a discounted vehicle.

The UDM has been vindicated for referring the matter to the Parliamentary Ethics Committee.
