Parliament has spent almost R84 000 on purchasing bulletproof vests for its so-called bouncers, whose main role is to remove unruly MPs from the House.
It is unclear why they would require such protection because all they appear to do is to push out Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) MPs.
An invoice, seen by City Press, describes the 40 items ordered on October 5 as protective gear for chamber support officers, with “bulletproof vests” in brackets.
The purchase order also reveals that the items would be needed by November 4 – two days after President Jacob Zuma’s scheduled appearance in the National Assembly for his last question-and-answer session for the year.
According to the latest parliamentary programme, Zuma will answer MPs’ questions on November 2 in the National Assembly and appear at the National Council of Provinces twice after that – on November 9 to answer questions, and on November 23 for his annual address.
Parliament did not respond to requests for comment, despite promising to do so. Read more

They recently purchased black vests.
“They’re technically ballistic vest and one of the big differences in that is everyone believes they are bulletproof, they’re not,” Battalion Chief Anthony Chittum explained to News 3. “They’re called a level three and they’re made to stop a certain level threat.”
Chittum said they started planning to buy the armor about a year ago.
They decided to spend $650 on each one due to rising concerns nationwide about first responders safety when dispatched to 911 calls.
“We really wanna look at it as an insurance policy. We would rather have the added protection and not need it, than when all of a sudden an emergency comes up and we don’t have the equipment,” he said.
Fire officials said crews typically won’t wear the vest if they’re responding to something like a house fire. Read more
