  4. Ponani Petunia Makhubele from Limpopo to replace Cde Nombulelo Hermans.
  5. Xiaomei Havard from Gauteng, to replace Cde Jackson Mthembu.

The new Members of Parliament were sworn-in earlier this afternoon in a Hybrid swearing-in ceremony by the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, Lechesa Tsenoli.

As the ANC in Parliament, we have full confidence that they will serve the people of South Africa with distinction.
