The ruling party says it will study the court judgment.

Parliament's failure to determine whether President Jacob Zuma breached the Constitution in the way he dealt with the public protector's Nkandla report, violated the Constitutional duty resting on the National Assembly to scrutinise and oversee the the actions of the executive, the Constitutional Court has found.

According to News24, judgment is expected at 10am on "whether the national assembly failed to put in place mechanisms to hold the president accountable".

The Constitutional Court's ruling on Friday follows its conclusion past year that Zuma violated the constitution when he benefited inappropriately from state funding for his Nkandla home.

Andy Murray takes it slow after injury woes
The men's final will be played on Saturday following the match to determine the victor of the No. 3 spot in the tournament. Kim Clijsters won the US Open in 2009, 18 months after giving birth to her first child, but was only 26 at the time.

The case brought by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF)‚ the United Democratic Movement and the Congress of the People asks the Constitutional Court to tell Parliament to start a procedure in which impeachment proceedings could start. However, Zuma's faction still retains key positions in the party, and he has survived no-confidence votes. Madonsela found that Zuma had derived undue benefit from the security upgrades at his home that spiralled to a cost of more than R200 million and eventually included a swimming pool, cattle kraal and amphitheatre, all added to Zuma's home at taxpayer's cost.

The unanimous ruling by the 11-judge court said Zuma had failed to "uphold, defend and respect" the constitution by ignoring the findings of former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, whose office is an anti-graft watchdog with a strong constitutional mandate.

He made it clear that the multiple motions of no confidence against the president that followed the judgment did not count as action by the National Assembly‚ as was argued by the speaker‚ because these motions were brought by opposition parties. Last week Zuma sought leave to appeal a court ruling ordering him to set up a judicial inquiry into influence-peddling in his government.
