Khumalo will oppose the expulsion and will attend the swearing-in of the National Assembly as an MP

Capetown – Expelled uMkhonto weSizwe Party (MK) member Jabulani Khumalo plans to attend the first sitting of the National Assembly to take the oath as a Member of Parliament (MP), despite his expulsion and clashes with the party.

Khumalo’s name remains at the top of the party’s final list for parliament.

In a statement, Khumalo called on 57 other MK Party members to attend the first meeting of the seventh parliamentary administration.

“If any MK MP fails to exercise his understandable fear of victimization by Mr Zuma and his clique, that will not in itself be a basis for Parliament to cease its activity of swearing at members of Parliament and continue with its planned work on the matter on a date selected by the Chief Justice the Most High.

“Mr Zuma will not continue to abuse our democratic processes, the will of the people and continue to undermine our parliament and other constitutional institutions such as our courts, and especially their leader, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court,” Khumalo said.

The final list included three other expelled members: Lebogang Moepeng, Rochelle Davidson and Bhekizenzo Manzini, the latter representing the party in the KwaZulu-Natal legislature.

These members were expelled in April for trying to destabilize the party.

Khumalo criticized the party’s efforts to block the first sitting of parliament as misguided and embarrassing.
