Baloyi re­signs as MP af­ter his ax­ing

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

FOR­MER co-op­er­a­tive gov­er­nance and tra­di­tional af­fairs min­is­ter Richard Baloyi re­signed as an MP shortly af­ter his ax­ing, it has emerged.

“He gave us no­tice that he’s re­sign­ing as a mem­ber of the National Assem­bly, ef­fec­tive July 10,” Par­lia­ment spokesman Luzuko Jacobs said.

Baloyi did not give his rea­sons.

Baloyi was one of three min­is­ters sacked by Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma dur­ing a Cabi­net reshuf­fle.

The other two min­is­ters who re­ceived the chop were Tokyo Sexwale and Dina Pule.

“Tokyo Sexwale is still a mem­ber of the National Assem­bly and so is Dina Pule,” Jacobs said. – Sapa
