THE ongoing saga of a professional complaint filed against a Nelson Mandela Bay psychologist by an angry beautician and ex-wife, who insists the woman stole her husband, has ended up in parliament, with the Minister of Health asked to explain why the matter has been dragging on for six years without resolution.

Mari-Lu filed a complaint with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) against De Wit in May 2007. But her now ex-husband and De Wit, who tied the knot last year, insist they only began their personal relationship in 2010.
