Plenary- National Assembly, 26 August 2014


DA Chief Whip John Steenhuisen lashes out at recent comments made by ANC members in the press regarding the office of the Public Protector.

This comes after Thuli Madonsela, the Public Protector, published a report entitled Secure in Comfort. Her investigation recommened that South African President Jacob Zuma pay back a portion of the public funds spent on security upgrades at his Nkandla home.

Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor, an ANC member herself, argued that the ANC also has the right to make responses to allegations in the media.
