EFF MP Floyd Shivambu looks set to become the first MP to face a disciplinary committee established under Parliament’s new rules, for his statements last year that President Jacob Zuma would arrest and kill ANC MPs. The speaker announced in Thursday’s Parliamentary Announcements‚ Tablings and Committee (ATC) reports document that the remarks made by Shivambu during the November motion of no confidence in Zuma would be referred to the disciplinary committee. According to Parliament’s new rules adopted in 2016‚ the committee "must investigate any alleged misconduct by a member" and report back to the speaker.
