No guarantee that next Parly will probe Nkandla

JOAHNNESBURG - Criticism has been voiced that there are no guarantees that the next Parliament will consider the Nkandla matter following the disbandment of the ad hoc committee dealing with the issue.

Opposition parties were outraged on Monday when the ruling party insisted that the next Parliament be tasked with handling the controversial issue, citing election time constraints as the main reason for the dissolvement.

The committee was set up after the Public Protector found that the president had unduly benefited from some of the R246-million upgrades to his private home in Nkandla.

It was set up to probe the President’s response to the Public Protector’s report on the Nkandla security upgrades.
