Speaker receives letter of resignation from SA President Zuma

Speaker receives letter of resignation from SA President Zuma

The EFF had written to Mbete, requesting that the vote be done via secret ballot, but Mbete replied to the party saying it assists Parliament's "efficiency in its oversight of the Executive", according to the statement.

It's pretty hard to forget the social media banter of how the then-president had angered his ancestors after a tent-raising speech.

If there was one place the former president probably hated the most, it would be Parliament, where Zuma often got "burnt" by the opposition.

Cape Town - The EFF once again walked out of the National Assembly on Thursday - this time it wasn't to protest against now former president Jacob Zuma, but rather against the election of his successor, Cyril Ramaphosa.

President Jacob Zuma has refused to accept the ANC's decision to sack him, and the party will now have to rely on an open ballot motion of no confidence brought by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to remove him in Parliament.

He did, however, say the EFF would attend Ramaphosa's maiden State of the Nation Address in a bid to engage his colleagues and convince them to see things from his political party's view.

Zuma was set to announce his resignation during the day.

These include corruption at state-owned entities, Constitutional Court rulings against him, a stagnation of the economy and mass Cabinet reshuffles.

Malema admitted he felt robbed by the fact that he would not be leading a motion of no confidence against Zuma. We want to be there for the victory.

Malema said his party was not sympathetic to Zuma's appeals that he was being victimised, and warned South Africans not to fall for his "crocodile tears".

"We are [still] going to the House". And we think on the dissolution of parliament, the discussion starts today. Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng will oversee the process.
