EFF: Whichever way - resignation or firing - as long as Zuma doesn't address SA

The EFF says it reiterates the call for a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma to be debated before the 2018 State of the Nation Address (Sona).

This comes after National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete announced the postponement of Sona until further notice.

EFF Secretary-General Godrich Gardee says Parliament's presiding officers have come to their senses.

Gardee says the EFF will continue to call for a no-confidence motion until Zuma's resignation letter is read into record in Parliament.

Godrich Gardee, EFF secretary-general

Whichever comes first - [resignation or firing] - as long as Zuma does not address this country.
