The DA is getting ready to grill Defence and Military Veterans Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula when she appears before the Portfolio Committee on Defence and Military Veterans to account for the controversial air force flight to Zimbabwe with high-ranking ANC comrades on board.

DA MP and spokesperson on defence Kobus Marais welcomed the decision of the committee's chairperson Cyril Xaba to call Mapisa-Nqakula to a meeting on the matter.

"The DA requested that the minister be summoned to appear before the committee after she wilfully oversaw the ANC's abuse of an air force jet to visit Zimbabwe," Marais said in a statement on Tuesday.

"The DA is of the view that Parliament should play its oversight role on this matter in order to ensure accountability and transparency."
