LIVE: Zuma no confidence debate

A DA-led vote of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma will be debated in the National Assembly today.

The motion comes a week after the release of the scathing state capture report by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.

The ANC caucus says it won't support the motion, as it's premature and ill-advised.

This is the DA's third attempt to unseat Zuma and the motion is item number six on the order paper.

Earlier, opposition parties called for a secret ballot, with EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu saying it will help prevent against intimidation.

However, Deputy Speaker Lechesa Tsenoli ruled against EFF and UDM appeals for MPs to be allowed to vote by secret ballot on the motion.
