In an unexpected move, Parliament Speaker Baleka Mbete has ruled in favour of a secret ballot.

Mbete briefed the media on her decision this afternoon. 

The DA, EFF, ACDP, SACP and some members of the ANC, have indicated they will vote against the president. 

ANC MPs have been warned against voting with the opposition. 

Last week, ANC Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu said removing Zuma would be damaging for the country.
