That's according to Parliament.


The police and police have offered the outspoken Khoza security after she received several death threats.


It comes after her public utterances against President Jacob Zuma.


Parliamentary spokesperson Moloto Mothapo says representatives of Parliament and police met with Khoza on Friday, 21 July.


"Ms Khoza indicated on Friday that she would first consult with her family and revert with a decision by the end of last weekend. Both Parliament and SAPS are still awaiting Dr Khoza's decision."


Mothapo says all security arrangements will be activated as soon as Khoza accepts.


Khoza has in recent months taken to Facebook to publicly speak out against the rot within the ruling party.


In her latest post, she says: "They threatened to kill me. I exposed them. They tried everything to silence me. They failed."

Khoza could not be reached for comment on the latest development.
