He was set to answer questions on, among other issues, his plans for economic recovery and his plan to reestablish public confidence in the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

Ramaphosa was also to address government’s proposed land reform programme.

Wednesday’s session is expected to be less dramatic than those of his predecessor, former president Jacob Zuma, who often faced disruptions by opposition MPs while attempting to speak.
