The ANC has reluctantly agreed to halt the Nkandla ad hoc committee until its mandate is clarified and includes the public protector's report.
While attempt to protect Jacob Zuma, the ANC seems to have forgotten the rationale behind the establishment of the office of the public protector.
The Public Protector says her approach is to whisper truth to power – but you don’t want to mess with her.
Whatever his shortcomings and challenges like Nkandla and the EFF, President Jacob Zuma can rely on his secure position in the ANC to see him through.
The public protector says she will request a meeting with Jacob Zuma "on the way forward", following the "hysteria"” surrounding the Nkandla matter.
Julius Malema has said his party will apply for an urgent interdict to stop the suspension of EFF MPs over recent disruptions in Parliament.
Nathi Nhleko said he would not consider the Nkandla matter yet, as it is in the hands of Parliament, ad "it must still be handled in Parliament".
Following the leaking of a letter relating to Nkandla, the ANC has blamed Thuli Madonsela for many things. But she could use a weapon in response.
While criticising Thuli Madonsela, Jesse Duarte says leaks relating to Nkandla from the public protector's office seem to be calculated.
Many of President Zuma's allies make up the ad hoc committee which will interrogate public protector Thuli Madonsela's report on Nkandla upgrades.
If President Jacob Zuma does not blink on the Nkandla scandal, he could find it heading down a very, very uncomfortable legal path.
Thuli Madonsela is concerned following Jacob Zuma indicating that the police head needs to determine if any money spent at Nkandla should be returned.
Economic Freedom Fighters MPs want President Jacob Zuma to pay back the money spent on Nkandla, causing uproar in Parliament on Thursday.
Parliamentary proceedings were adjourned after the EFF disrupted President Jacob Zuma earlier on Thursday.
