Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance on Tuesday announced it is seeking legal advice on the ANC's decision to refer the Nkandla ad hoc committee's work to the fifth Parliament.
“We will continue the fight to get answers and we will do everything possible to protect the integrity of Parliament,” DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko told journalists at Parliament.
“The DA will now seek legal advice on the ANC's effective frustration of various constitutional principles through their conduct during the meeting of the ad hoc committee.
The ad hoc committee, which was set up to probe President Jacob Zuma's response to the Public Protector's damning report on R246 million security upgrades to his private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal, was effectively dissolved on Monday through a majority vote by the ANC.
The ruling party claimed there was not enough time before the fourth Parliament dissolved at midnight on May 6 for the committee to do justice to the task at hand.
