UDM leader Bantu Holomisa welcomes the decision to postpone the 2018 State of the Nation Address (Sona).
Opposition parties last week called for Sona to be postponed in order to table an urgent motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma.
The ANC's national working committee met on Monday night and resolved to convene a special NEC meeting to discuss Zuma's future on Wednesday.
Holomisa suspects that Zuma may resign before the special NEC meeting is held.
We are happy with the decision. Of course, we took initiative last week to call for the postponement.— Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader
The President is being questioned by his own political party. It's the right decision.— Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader
The writing is on the wall, he [Zuma] is on the way out.— Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader
It looks as though the man is packing his boxes. I wouldn't be surprised... You know Zuma always makes announcements at midnight.— Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader
He might make that announcement before the NEC meeting tomorrow to avoid any humiliation.— Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader
