The speaker of the Limpopo legislature, Tshenuwani Farisani, is expected to pronounce before the end of this week on the controversy-prone MEC for sport, Joyce Mashamba.

Mashamba sprang to notoriety recently when she allegedly attempted to lay her hands on the leader of the United Independent Front (UIF), Ike Kekana, during a meeting of the legislature's portfolio committee on sports, arts and culture.

The committee had met to look at the controversial appointment of Wisani Mashamba, the MEC's son, as deputy manager responsible for human resource development in her department.

Kekana had earlier said he had taken Wisani's appointment to the public protector to ensure it was reversed.

Mashamba, the deputy chairman of the ANC in Limpopo, is understood to have furiously moved towards Kekana, who jumped over tables to escape.

Kenny Mathivha, the legislature's spokesman, said yesterday that Farisani was talking to various people about the report he had received from the portfolio committee.

"The speaker is finalising the consultative process and would make the pronouncement before the end of this week," he said.
