Parliament's ethics committee yesterday failed to reach a conclusion on whether Deputy President Jacob Zuma breached the institution's code of conduct for MPs, and plans to meet again on the issue soon.

Speaking after yesterday's committee meeting, chairperson Luwellyn Landers said no decision had been reached, and declined to elaborate further.

Another meeting would be held soon, possibly next week.

During the two previous meetings over the past few weeks, committee members decided to request further documentation from certain individuals.

These have been received.

Landers has rejected claims the committee was handling Zuma with "kid gloves", saying the committee had previously dealt with allegations against other high profile leaders, and they were all treated as any other MP.

The committee is looking into, among other things, whether Zuma breached the code by not properly disclosing his business interests and other benefits on the register of members' interests.

These allegedly include a series of payments totalling over R1-million from his financial advisor and Durban businessman Schabir Shaik, who is facing criminal charges of fraud and corruption. – Sapa.
