DA calls Zuma to set up a commission of enquiry into phone hacking
16 October 2011
The Democratic Alliance has called on President Jacob Zuma to set up an independent commission of enquiry into allegations of phone hacking in South Africa.
This follows a report into hacking by the Mail and Guardian newspaper.
DA leader Helen Zille says phone hacking is a concern for all South Africans, not just politicians.
Zille added that President Zuma needs to act decisively in the matter to put to rest peoples’ fears that the country is becoming a surveillance state.
