ANC to support EFF motion to remove Zuma

This was in response to the National Freedom Party chief whip Moses Khubisa, who called on Ramaphosa to inculcate a new culture of nation building and patriotism.

EFF leader Julius Malema wants parliament dissolved today, Thursday, and has the motion to achieve just that at the ready.

Mbete had written to Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema informing him that she has chose to reschedule the motion of no confidence for Thursday.

Mthembu said the substance of the EFF motion which "will result in the president going, that will still remain".

Speaker of South Africa's parliament, Baleka Mbete, said she received a letter from Jacob Zuma informing her of his resignation as president. There shouldn't be an election of a president. "We can not be the respecters of the constitution when it comes to Zuma, but when it comes to us, we want to pretend that we are clean", he said.

Ramaphosa was elected ANC president in December and replaced Jacob Zuma, who resigned in a live address to the nation on Wednesday night.

United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa credited ordinary South Africans for Ramaphosa's election and joked that the ANC had finally managed to give Zuma a "shibobo". In all these sins and shenanigans‚ the ANC was the shield that protected Jacob Zuma from being held accountable.

The House is set to elect elect Cyril Ramaphosa as the new president. If the EFF believes that the 5th parliament is illegitimate, it could argue that its election of Ramaphosa is also illegitimate, and he should not have the right to address the national assembly. "This is a moment in our country when we must go back to the people of SA and ask them for a fresh mandate", Maimane said, calling for fresh elections to be held.

"The EFF will however participate in the State of the Nation Address and will robustly engage all the issues that will be raised there". We can not continue to be in a state of limbo, we need to bring certainty that, yes we are now on course, and government and parliament are working.
