Spooked by the inferno that gutted the parliamentary buildings, senior MPs resolved to expedite a security committee which was first mooted a month before the fire broke out in the early hours of 2 January.

At the National Assembly Programming Committee's (NAPC) final meeting of last year, on 2 December, it decided to constitute a committee to look at security at the parliamentary complex.

This after a break-in at the office of DA chief whip Natasha Mazzone, which was raised in the committee in November.
