ANC MPs shouldn't wait for opposition to act against Zuma - SACP

South African Communist Party (SACP) second deputy secretary general Solly Mapaila says African National Congress (ANC) Members of Parliament (MPs) should raise the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma within its caucus.

The alliance partner's central committee has already made a call that Zuma should resign following last week's Cabinet reshuffle making 20 changes in the executive.

SACP and three of the ANC's top six leaders have criticised the President for axing Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas.

It's high time the President has let down the people of South Africa. He has disappointed us as well in the manner that he has conducted himself.

Solly Mapaila, SACP second deputy general secretary

We can't be protecting corruption and irrational decision taken by the President.
