President Jacob Zuma will be appearing in parliament on Wednesday in a final Q & A session for the year. However there is skepticism that Speaker Baleka Mbethe will remain impartial.

President Jacob Zuma is expected in Parliament on 23 November for his final Q & A session for the year.

Zuma is expected to answer questions related to the recently released State Capture Report by the Public Protector in which he was implicated of allowing the Gupta Family to use their relationship with him in order to benefit financially from the state.

He is also expected to answer questions on how the State will be dealing with the ongoing call for free education by university students, as well as the calls for the resignationa of  National Prosecution Authority head, Shaun Abraham's.

Amid the controversy of Zuma’s perceived lack of accountability for the crisis, at yesterday’s sitting of Parliament the DA accused National Speaker Baleka Mbethe of being incapable of being impartial and called her unfit for her seat.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane wrote a letter to Mbethe to ask her to recuse herself from the Q & A session amid concerns that she would be biased towards President Zuma throughout process
