Zuma faces a grilling

Sunday Times - - WEEK IN REVIEW -

Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma will this week come face to face with MPs for the first time since the failed mo­tion of no con­fi­dence in his lead­er­ship three weeks ago.

Zuma is sched­uled to take oral ques­tions in the Na­tional As­sem­bly on Thurs­day, rang­ing from state cap­ture to the con­tro­ver­sial nu­clear build pro­gramme.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane will ask Zuma how he in­tends deal­ing with the re­ces­sion and what his plans are to en­sure a trans­par­ent nu­clear pro­cure­ment process.

Other MPs want to ques­tion Zuma on a com­mis­sion of in­quiry into state cap­ture, as rec­om­mended by for­mer public pro­tec­tor Thuli Madon­sela.

Zuma could re­ceive a hos­tile re­cep­tion from the op­po­si­tion benches, given his nar­row vic­tory in the no-con­fi­dence vote.
