Parliament – The DA will submit further evidence to National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu to support its request for impeachment proceedings against President Jacob Zuma, it said on Tuesday.
“This new evidence suggests that President Zuma may have deliberately misled Parliament, and violated the Constitution and the law,” said the Democratic Alliance’s leader in Parliament Lindiwe Mazibuko.
“This warrants a full parliamentary investigation, which is specifically mandated by my motion to impeach President Zuma.”
Mazibuko requested Parliament on March 20 to establish an ad hoc committee and the initiation of impeachment proceedings against Zuma.
Her request followed the tabling of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s report on upgrades to the president’s Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal, residence.
