EFF's motion of no confidence in Zuma set for February

The EFF says National Assembly Speaker, Baleka Mbete has scheduled their motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma for the 22nd of February. 


The EFF's Floyd Shivambu says they're not happy that the motion of no confidence will take place after the State of the Nation Address. 

Shivambua has been speaking on the sidelines of an EFF meeting in Kempton Park, north west of Johannesburg. 

He believes a secret ballot will see Zuma being voted out.

"We still insist that we think that Parliament must be given an opportunity to assess whether President Jacob Zuma is still suitable to be president of South Africa. Even before he gives the state address, it will be a waste of time to listen to Jacob Zuma on the 8th of February and on the 22nd of February, we're debating whether he is suitable or not to be president," he says. 

DA chief whip in Parliament, John Steenhuisen says the opposition party will write to Parliament's presiding officers to postpone SONA. 

He believes Zuma has lost all credibility.

"We should hear from the new president of the republic of South Africa about how he intends to fix the mess created by Mr. Zuma and his government," he says.

Meanwhile, supporters of President Zuma have been addressing the media in Johannesburg. 

They want Zuma to serve his full second term as Head of State - saying the ANC's new leadership should focus on Radical Economic Transformation.
