The Democratic Alliance said the move by the African National Congress majority in parliament to block the inclusion of the report by the Public Protector into Nkandla, for the Ad Hoc Committee is a great loss for executive accountability.

Parliament last night voted to establish an ad hoc committee that would review Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko’s report on the security upgrades at President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla homestead.

DA Leader Spokesperson Mabine Seabe said as such ANC voted to absolve the President and degenerate accountability on the President’s part.

“We are on the views that the Minister’s report is irrational and biased and therefore can’t be reviewed insolation and the Public Protector’s report must also be looked at by the heads of the committee.” Seabe added.

Meanwhile the Congress of the People said the establishment of the committee is an insult to South Africans.

National Spokesperson Dennis Bloem said they will not participate in undermining the Constitution nor the office of the Public Protector.

“We have said this last year that we are not there to undermine the office of the Public Protector and we are also there to respect the constitution. We are not going to participate in any ad hoc committee.” Bloem added.
