This, according to Advocate Zola Majavu, was crucial in arguing for the claim that his client, Nomgcobo Jiba, was unfit to hold office.
Jiba, through her attorney, Zola Majavu, told the inquiry she was surprised by Agrizzi’s decision to withdraw.
Jiba’s attorney Zola Majavu asked Justice Yvonne Mokgoro to make submissions on Agrizzi’s about turn.
"The allegations made by Agrizzi must be disregarded in the Mokgoro [inquiry], unless such evidence is cross-examined here at the inquiry" Jiba's attorney Zola Majavu submitted.
But Jiba through his legal counsel, Zola Majavu pleaded with the Mokgoro inquiry to ignore the affidavit of Agrizzi due to his last minute withdrawal.
However, Jiba's lawyer Zola Majavu, during cross-examination, attempted to poke holes in Roelofse's assertions.
The claim was made by Jiba's attorney, Zola Majavu, on Thursday.
Moreover, the Mokgoro inquiry, on Thursday, heard evidence from Jiba’s legal representative, Advocate Zola Majavu, that he had been told by the North West’s director of public prosecutions that the case against her would be stricken off the roll.
