The president is accountable to the National Assembly
The proposition that “The calls for Msholozi to resign are fundamentally, if not brazenly, unconstitutional …” cannot go unchallenged (Ken Sibanda, “Power Lies in the Ballot”, City Press, May 7 2017).
It is a treacherous distortion that any self-respecting lawyer should be ashamed of.
It is surely not asking too much of someone who pens an article to familiarise themselves with the issues at hand.
It is disconcerting that, 23 years into our democracy, one has to school a lawyer-cum-film director in the basics of our Constitution.
The audacity of his article may mislead and lay the basis for an improper defence of President Jacob Zuma.
South Africa is a constitutional democracy, with separation of powers between the legislature, executive and judiciary.
