Portfolio committee chairwoman Nonhlahla Ncube-Ndaba expressed her disappointment when she found the doors to the tavern locked.
“As MPs, we have the right to come and do our oversight, so no one should stop us or prevent us from doing our job. Therefore, people must be held accountable for what they do. We will do our job.
