President Jacob Zuma will be back in the spotlight when Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and other ministers field questions from MPs in Parliament.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) MPs are expected back in the House after the expiry of their five-day suspension, following their ejection prior to the President’s question and answer session earlier this month.
The DA will ask Police Minister Nathi Nhleko for an update on a docket opened at the Nkandla police station pertaining to eight charges of corruption against Zuma ‘for his complicity in the alleged misappropriation of public funds to upgrade his personal residence’.
Nhleko will also be asked why he did not obtain legal advice during the compilation of his report into the security upgrades at Nkandla.
Ramaphosa will be quizzed‚ among other things‚ about how SA’s message was received at the recent World Economic Forum Africa meeting that was recently held in Kigali‚ Rwanda.
He will also be asked what steps the government has taken to ensure that state resources‚ in the form of food parcels‚ will not be abused again after the public protector found this had been done by the Social Security Agency in the run-up to the national elections in 2009.
