DA, EFF, FF+, IFP and ACDP stage a walk-out at Nkandla Committee

Lusanda Bill
26 September 2014

Five opposition parties today staged a walk-out of the Nkandla ad hoc Committee. 

This is after the parties called for President Jacob Zuma to appear before the committee to answer to the findings by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, however the African National Congress refused. 

The opposition parties said they refuse to be part of a process that is being hijacked and manipulated by the ANC to protect President Jacob Zuma from accountability. 

DA Parliamentary Leader Mmusi Maimane said the view of the opposition parties is that Parliament must be a place that executives to account. 

“Therefore we felt that we could not sit through a process that does not allow President Zuma to come and account.  And also wants to make the Public Protector to be the same as the SIU.  So we then took a decision to say we could not participate in that so we decided to walk out” Maimane added.
