A view of the controversial homestead of South African President Jacob Zuma in Nkandla on January 21, 2014.
JOHANNESBURG - Parliament’s Ad Hoc Committee on the Nkandla report has been shut down.
ANC MPs put forward a motion and put it to a vote to suspend activities due to a lack of time to complete its work.
It will now be up to the Speaker of the new parliament to decide whether to reconstitute such a committee.
The special 12-member committee was set up to consider President Jacob Zuma&39;s reply to the Public Protector&39;s report on Nkandla.
