Analysts have warned parliament against delaying the prosecution of President Cyril Ramaphosa over the Phala Phala farm scandal.

In a report on state capture, Supreme Court and Commission President Raymond Zonda made scathing findings against Parliament for failing to fulfill its oversight role in holding the executive to account during former president Jacob Zuma’s era.

Various political parties, as a result, sought to intensify their efforts to hold the President and his executive to account for the unreported theft at his farm in Limpopo.

After a series of meetings between the seven opposition parties, they will jointly brief the media on the general approach they have taken and the measures they will take on Wednesday.

Political scientist Levi Ndu says: “The President is accountable to Parliament. I think Parliament has a right to ask for clarity and to know what really happened. Because they are responsible for it. In one way or another, you need the President to be able to trust Parliament so that this cloud that has been hanging over the President is really lifted. Equally, the Probe Commission has identified issues of concern in the way Parliament holds the executive accountable. Parliament can be expected to respond positively to what emerges from the report of the Commission on State Capture,” adds Ndu.
