Mbete, Modise to meet with party leaders over Nkandla Ruling

Parliament’s presiding officers have asked to meet with political party leaders today to discuss the historic Constitutional Court judgment on the Nkandla matter.

The court found Parliament failed in its duty to hold President Jacob Zuma accountable for the Nkandla spending debacle by ensuring compliance with the Public Protector's directives.

The court ruling paved the way for a failed impeachment bid in the National Assembly last week. 

It has also sparked calls from within the ANC and outside for President Zuma to step down.

National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete and Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces Thandi Modise have called the meeting.

But it's unclear whether all party leaders will attend.

United Democratic Movement  leader Bantu Holomisa doesn't think it's worth it.
