Parliament diary: Revolutionaries and rhinos
Calm, of a sort, appeared to have returned to Parliament’s National Assembly on Tuesday, following the drama almost a fortnight ago which saw riot police called in to expel members of the Economic Freedom Fighters who refused to leave the House after demanding to know when President Jacob Zuma would pay back the money he owes for Nkandla. Speaker Baleka Mbete confirmed that the matter would be left to Parliament’s Powers and Privileges Committee to resolve, but there was no sign that the Fighters were feeling daunted.
