Speaker of the National Assembly Nosiwewe Mapisa Nkakula named a three-member independent panel
which will assess whether there is sufficient evidence for the Assembly to impeach President Cyril Ramaphosa in relation to his Phala Phala Farm saga.
They are former Chief Justice Sandile Ngcoba, retired Justice Thokozile Masipah and UCT academic Richard Kaland.
Judge Masipa presided over the televised trial of Oscar Pistorius.
The commission, which will be chaired by Justice Ngcoba, will determine whether there is prima facie evidence that the President has violated any of the grounds in Section 89 of the Constitution.
This follows from a draft proposal tabled in the National Assembly by ATM leader Vuyolwetu Zungula,
Parliamentary spokesperson Molata Motapa says: “After carefully considering the names at her disposal, assessing their credentials in accordance with the provisions of the rules, as well as the need to ensure gender and demographic balance and establish their ability to serve on the panel, the Speaker has appointed three suitable and appropriate persons to perform the duties assigned to them.”
