We were disappointed to learn that the inquiry had to be postponed pending Tshabalala’s formal response to Parliament on the charges laid against her. We note that Tshabalala has twice missed the deadlines accorded her by Parliament to respond to the simple question: did she or did she not mislead Parliament by misrepresenting her qualifications under oath?
As the inquiry unfolds, we hope that Parliament will ensure transparency in the process both in form (as it has, so far, by insisting on keeping the hearings open to the public) and in substance (by following the letter of the law with no fear or favour).

Urgent Industry and Civil Society TV Content Discussion Meeting - Local TV Content may be drastically reduced - Wednesday 3rd September at the NFVF
Date submitted: 26 August 2014
We call on the Committee Chair to do the right thing and summon the Minister back to Parliament to account fully and substantively on the matter of the Public Protector’s report post haste. Anything short of this can only be read as a show of the Committee’s allegiance to the executive and not the public it is required to represent, and a consummate violation of the separation of powers on which our Constitutional Democracy is founded.

The Coalition calls on Parliament to immediately investigate these allegations. Further, Coalition members believe that if these allegations are correct and there is strong evidence to back this up, the Chair must step down from her position with immediate effect.
