The ANC has announced that National Working Committee member and Environmental Affairs Minister Nomvula Mokonyane will be redeployed to its head office at Luthuli House in Johannesburg. She has requested that her name be withdrawn from the list of those sworn in as Members of Parliament earlier today. The party says Mokonyane has asked to no longer be deployed to parliament due to family responsibilities and her being in mourning following her husband's passing. It was announced on Monday that she would become the new House Chairperson. ANC spokesperson, Pule Mabe elaborates.
