Baloyi resigns as MP after his axing
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
