parliamentTimesLive writes that conflict over bad management in Parliament has seen a mass exodus of senior staff, who have resigned due to their deteriorating relationship with the head of the institution, Gengezi Mgidlana.  

Six staff members resigned last month and ten have resigned since January.  Last year staff brought Parliament to a standstill when they went on an unprotected strike over a dispute that is still rumbling on.  The National Education Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) accuses Mgidlana of running Parliament like his personal fiefdom and wants the ANC to intervene in the same way that it has in respect of the SABC.  Parliament spokesman Luzuko Jacobs disputed claims of an "exodus" of skilled staff.  He said people join and leave organisations all the time for reasons "related to better prospects, contract expiry, family considerations or any other reason".
