Public law expert Dr Cathy Powell says the chances are slim that the DA's bid to have Bathabile Dlamini and Malusi Gigaba fire will succeed.
The opposition party wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to dismiss the two embattled ministers from his cabinet by Friday October 5, failing which, it says it will go to court to test the rationality of Ramaphosa's decision to keep them.
The DA says it plans on laying complaints of perjury against both Dlamini and Gigaba.
Powell says the DA should be approaching parliament and not the courts with regards to political accountability for Cabinet members.
