The proceedings at the section 194 inquiry hearings got heated with advocate Dali Mpofu issuing a threat and a promise to Chairperson Richard Dyantyi.

Mpofu was responding to Dyantyi’s refusal to postpone this week’s hearings until after Friday’s application where President Cyril Ramaphosa and the Democratic Alliance (DA) will be appealing the lifting of Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s suspension by the Western Cape High Court.

He was supposed to cross-examine witness Nelisiwe Thejane but requested a postponement citing Friday’s court challenge.

But Dyantyi declined his request leading to an outburst from Mpofu.

In terms of the Powers, Privileges and Immunities Act, no member of Parliament must be threatened while exercising his or her duty.

Here’s what transpired during the inquiry sitting.
