EFF ends Zuma Q&A boycott and DA leader Mmusi Maimane wants to know if the President has abused his position to serve his family.

President Jacob Zuma is expected to respond to questions on whether or not he has abused his office to influence the award of state contracts to family members.

The question from Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maiimane is the first on the order paper.

The President is set to answer questions in Parliament on Thursday afternoon.

Eyewitness News reporter Gaye Davis says the Economic Freedom Fighter's will be back for Zuma's Q&A - the first time since it began boycotting these sessions last year.

As far as the questions go, there are questions from ANC MPs which will give the President an opportunity to expand on things like the G20 and African development.

But the real questions are coming from opposition MPs, she says.

We have got the IFP's Liezl van der Merwe who wants to know whether Zuma has asked social development Bathabile Dlamini for any further details because she made a statement that she is aware of senior government leaders who are guilty of more serious crimes against women.
