Constitutional Court to rule on EFF and other parties’ ‘Zuma impeachment’ case
Opposition parties are asking the court to compel Parliament to act against the president over the Nkandla scandal
The Constitutional Court will deliver judgment on Friday in opposition parties’ so-called impeachment case against President Jacob Zuma, in which the parties have asked the court for an order to compel Parliament to take action against him. The EFF, United Democratic Movement and the Congress of the People (COPE) brought the application, in which the opposition parties have asked for an order compelling Parliament to order an investigation into Zuma’s conduct over the Nkandla matter, with a view to determining whether his conduct warranted an impeachment. The DA was admitted as an intervening party, while Corruption Watch was admitted as amicus curiae.
