KwaZulu-Natal Premier Dr Zweli Mkhize has noted the court appearance of the Speaker of the Provincial Legislature, Mrs Peggy Nkonyeni
1 Jun 2009
The Premier as the Head of the Provincial Executive is guided by the Constitution and in particular the doctrine of separation of powers. In this regard the responsibilities of the Premier do not extend to matters that fall squarely within the ambit of the Legislature as an independent arm of government.
The Legislature is competent to deal with all matters hat have a bearing on its capacity to perform as an institution. It is essential that all of us, including opposition political parties, create an environment that will ensure that people do not undermine the cornerstone of our jurisprudence system that a person is innocent until proven guilty by a competent court of law.
The judicial processes must be respected and observed by all of us.
