South Africa’s parliament will appoint an independent panel that will recommend whether or not to initiate a process to impeach President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Parliament Speaker Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said the panel will be appointed after a request by the opposition African Transformation Movement, according to a letter published on the party’s Twitter handle on Friday.
