Parliament is set to debate a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma just weeks after the State of the Nation Address.
The motion was brought forward by the Democratic Alliance, which claims that about 800 000 South Africans had expressed their dissatisfaction with Zuma in writing.
Xolani Gwala on Monday spoke to Cathleen Powell, a Public Law lecturer at the University of Cape Town, about what this motion means for Zuma.
