Zuma to face the music at no confidence debate in Parliament

South Africans await the much anticipated debate on a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma taking place in Parliament on Thursday afternoon.

Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Lechesa Tsenoli, said he expects Members of Parliament to conduct themselves cordially and not cause chaos as seen in previous sittings of the house.

It's difficult to know whether there'll be chaos but we can assume that it might happen today from past experience.

Speaking to 702's John Robbie, he said that he often finds himself in a predicament as his rulings might be seen as being in favour of the ANC (African National Congress) which leads to unnecessary point of orders.

The motion of no confidence was tabled in Parliament after the release of the State of Capture report by former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela.

This is the nature of a political environment... I do wish that things don't become as chaotic as they usually do during debates.
