#NoConfidence: Callers share mixed reactions to level of debate in Parly

702 listeners have shared their reaction to the motion of no confidence debate in Parliament.

MPs used their allocated time in Parliament to have their say and callers shared their thoughts with presenter Bongani Bingwa.

I'm disappointed with the level of debate from ANC MPs. I'm not impressed at all. None of the MPs told the nation why they have confidence in President Jacob Zuma.

Kganya, caller

I think Zuma is going to survive. I know the ANC won't do the honourable thing. The opposition will succeed in further divide the ANC.

Basil, caller

The ANC MPs spoke decisively. They showed leadership. I am proud of the ANC and will continue vote for them until I die.

Lusanda, caller

The corruption and state capture is not only from the President, but also the ministers in his Cabinet. It includes the MPs too.

Toto, caller

Listening to the debate this afternoon, it didn't seem like the ANC came to argue about why President Jacob Zuma should stay. The motion put forward was about his rationality and whether he was fit to hold office.

Mbali, caller
