Advocate Dali Mpofu has been cleared by the Legal Practice Council (LPC) following allegations of misconduct during the Zondo Commission hearings last year.

City Press reports that Mpofu, a prominent EFF member, faced several charges relating to the breach of the LPC’s code of conduct following his alleged outburst directed at Advocate Michelle le Roux, who was Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan’s legal counsel when he appeared before the commission in last year.

In March, the Johannesburg Society of Advocates found Mpofu guilty of an ethical violation for speaking disrespectfully to Le Roux.

Spokesperson Kabelo Letebele confirmed that the LPC had found Mpofu not guilty of contravening the council’s code of conduct in a ruling made on 2 June.
