[Listen] Lekota calls for early elections, says Zuma won't go

COPE leader Mosiuoa Lekota says through his long term political relationship with President Zuma, he doubts Zuma will agree to resign. Speaking to Stephen Grootes, Lekota says that Zuma took an oath of loyalty to the country not the ANC.

The ANC is not aware but I think he is aware, that if it gets rid of him that guarantees that South Africa will never again have a president from the ANC.

Lekota say that all caucus members of the ANC have failed to uphold their oath of office as found by the Constitutional Court and that gives Cope the upper hand in the the call for early elections.
