POLL | Was Busisiwe Mavuso right about the ANC-led government being to blame for Eskom’s failures?
Speaking on 702, Mavuso said she felt disrespected and claimed she was treated like a “naughty 12-year-old schoolgirl”.
“I am not going to be told to behave as if I am a naughty 12-year-old schoolgirl. I don’t even talk to my 10-year-old son in that manner,” she said.
Hlengwa said he was not going to engage in a public spat with Mavuso and had a responsibility to parliament to ensure accountability was upheld.
“Some of us in our political capacities agree with her that this is an ANC mess. That is not in dispute. She raised the right issue in the wrong meeting with the wrong people. We were not there on a political expedition,” Hlengwa said.
DA chief whip Natasha Mazzone called for parliament to suspend Hlengwa and launch an investigation into his conduct.
Speaking to CapeTalk, former Gauteng premier Mbhazima Shilowa said Mavuso could have used a different tone, “but there was no need for her to have been asked to leave”.
