The EFF says it wants Zuma to be held accountable for his conduct associated with the Nkandla scandal and also for lying to Parliament.

We're not asking for the ConCourt to remove the President. The court must order Parliament to do it's duty.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF spokesperson

EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says the party is duty bound to hold the executive accountable.

We believe that Parliament should hold him accountable in relation to the Nkandla ruling.

Ndlozi explains that Friday 31 March marks the one year anniversary of the scathing ConCourt ruling on Nkandla, yet Zuma has not been held accountable in Parliament.
