South Africa: Parliament Notes Police Ministry Statement With Concern

Speaker of the National Assembly, Ms Baleka Mbete, has noted with grave concern the statement by the Ministry of Police wherein the Minister of Police, Mr Nathi Nhleko, “clarifies the return of Robert McBride from suspension.”

The statement, in its totality, raises serious concerns and casts aspersions on Parliamentary processes. This is unprecedented, unwarranted and unfortunate. Parliament operates on the basis of Rules and set processes and these were followed in this regard.

The Speaker will take this matter up with the Leader of Government Business as a matter of urgency.
