Xolani also spoke to Luzuko Jacobs, Parliament spokesperson, to find out who should or should not enter Parliament.

I’m unable to say who exactly entered other than the members of the Parliamentary protection services. In terms of the rules, Parliamentary protection services have authority, once given that authority by the Speaker, to enter the House and to perform certain functions that relate to them.
