ANC to support EFF motion to remove Zuma

Despite Zuma's late-night resignation as President of South Africa, the Economic Freedom Fighters say they still want early elections to take place. Because this parliament has been complicit in creating the personality cult that is Jacob Zuma and it must be dissolved to reconstitute a new leadership of South Africa with a fresh mandate from the general participation of our people through elections.

Malema said it was for this reason that the EFF would call for the dissolution of Parliament.

Mthembu said the substance of the EFF motion which "will result in the president going, that will still remain".

"If the ANC of Ramaphosa is honest and truly seeks a new and stable future‚ it must agree to the call for early elections".

The EFF are holding a media briefing in response to Zuma's resignation. "We can not be the respecters of the constitution when it comes to Zuma, but when it comes to us, we want to pretend that we are clean", he said.

The ANC's 62% majority in parliament means that it will not need any opposition votes to elect Ramaphosa, and after the party's national executive committee "recalled" Zuma on Tuesday, and resolved that its newly-anointed president should replace him.

Zuma was in elected 2009 as the third president of South Africa. In all these sins and shenanigans‚ the ANC was the shield that protected Jacob Zuma from being held accountable.

Ramaphosa extended an olive branch to opposition parties in his maiden address to members of parliament as head of state on Thursday.

"We don't have a Jacob Zuma problem. My wish is that all of us should be able to work and lead our people with great courage", Ramaphosa said. We can not continue to be in a state of limbo, we need to bring certainty that, yes we are now on course, and government and parliament are working.

Malema's comments also raise the spectre of yet another disrupted State of the Nation Address on Friday. "I pray that you have the courage to do the right thing even if it is not popular...even if the comrade say let us go left but you know the right is the way to go".
