She told the panel interviewing the SABC board candidates that listing Co-operative Governance Minister Zweli Mkhize as a reference in her CV has nothing to do with politics. She was asked by Democratic Alliance MP Phumzile van Damme why she listed Mkhize as one of her references.

Papaya told the Parliamentary committee that Mkhize’s department was also involved in the return of the remains of Nat Nakasha, a project Papaya was spearheading.
