The United Democratic Movement (UDM) recently sought leave to amend its plea at the Gauteng High Court and asked to use the Commission of inquiry into allegations of impropriety regarding Public Investment Corporation’s (the Mpati Commission) findings to be used in court if Harith et al still have an appetite to sue the UDM and myself for defamation.
