JOHANNESBURG - The Parliamentary committee investigating the conduct of 20 Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Members of Parliament (MPs), who heckled President Jacob Zuma in the National Assembly, says the matter's initiator is expected to give feedback on the evidence that emerged during proceedings.

The EFF MPs staged a walk out at the start of the hearing this week, saying they will not be subjected to what they called a 'kangaroo court' by the African National Congress (ANC).

But the process has however continued without the MPs.

Parliament's Powers and Privileges Committee Chairman Lemius Mashile says, "The initiator is the one that led evidence and he should be in a position where he can put a report to indicate whether certain charges have been proved to have happened and to have amounted to contempt of Parliament."
