6 April 2017 6:07 PM

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete has failed to recognise their request for a secret ballot.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says he's written to National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete reiterating the call for a secret ballot during the vote of no confidence in President Zuma.

Holomisa says he wrote Mbete a letter on Thursday morning following her failure to acknowledge previous correspondence.

The opposition leader says he's given Mbete until 10am tomorrow before pursuing "a legal remedy".

He says there has already been threats of intimidation for ANC MPs to tow the party line.

If she fails to respond, then we follow another route.
