2017 was a bumper year of parliamentary business, court battles, internal squabbles, jousting, brinkmanship, attempts to remove the President from office, dissolve Parliament and parliamentary inquiries, as the Parliamentary Monitoring Group saw it.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) came under fire from MPs on Tuesday for not providing accurate information on the number of learners needing transport.

A top-level Committee meeting at Parliament this week heard that another shutdown could be pending soon in the volatile region of Vuwani in Limpopo.

It is commonly accepted that the wheels of bureaucracy grind slowly, but just how slowly has been made clear in the important oversight role played by Parliament’s Questions.
