DA launches another motion of no confidence against President Zuma

DA Chief Whip John Steenhuizen says there are only two ways a president can be removed in South Africa in terms of the Constitution.

One is a motion of no confidence that requires a simple majority in the national Assembly. The other is a vote of impeachment...which requires a two-thirds vote.

John Steenhuizen, DA Chief Whip

We believe that there are a significant number of people within the ANC now, who because of the President's latest actions are fed up and are looking for change.

He says only 50 ANC MPs are needed to abstain or stay away in order for the motion to succeed.

Steenhuizen says there will be vigorous lobbying among these potential allies over the next few weeks.

We can't stand idly by while President Zuma swings about wildly destroying the State like a wrecking ball.
