ANC in jeopardy over court's ruling on Zuma

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng

Madonsela found that Zuma had derived undue benefit from the security upgrades at his home that spiralled to a cost of more than R200 million and eventually included a swimming pool, cattle kraal and amphitheatre, all added to Zuma's home at taxpayer's cost.

He also told Parliament section 89 implicitly imposed an obligation on it to me make rules, which it had failed to.

Zuma has denied wrongdoing over numerous corruption allegations that have swirled around his presidency.

Zuma, an earthy politician with scant formal education who spent a decade in prison with Nelson Mandela for fighting apartheid, has faced numerous corruption allegations throughout his presidency.

Parliament has started a process to outline a procedure to implement section 89 and will finalized these rules in line with the court's order, it said in an emailed statement.

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) welcomes the Constitutional Court judgement based on the case brought for a declaratory order to force Parliament to hold the president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, to account.

'Scared' pregnant woman found murdered after cops blow off frantic 911 call
A neighbor allegedly called police after hearing a baby crying loudly from inside the home, however, police did not confirm that. Meanwhile, friends and strangers took to Tonie Wells' Facebook page after her death to offer their condolences.

The African National Congress (ANC) says the full implications of Friday's Constitutional Court judgment will be discussed in two weeks' time when the party's newly elected leaders meet for the first time.

"The assembly must put in place a mechanism that could be used for the removal of the president from office", Judge Chris Jafta said, handing down the judgment, which was supported by a majority of the court, and shown on live television. Now that the ruling party's top seat is no longer his, but Cyril Ramaphosa's, Zuma may not have the same protection he once had.

OUTA compiled a case to expose the reality and extent of Zuma's conduct and connection to state capture and submitted it to each member of parliament to ensure everyone is informed to hold him to account. Dozens of EFF supporters, clad in their trademark red shirts and berets, danced and sang outside the court after the judgment was delivered.

In March previous year, the Constitutional Court delivered a damning ruling in which it stated that Zuma had failed to "uphold, defend and respect the Constitution" when he did not adhere to the remedial actions called for by Madonsela.

Opposition parties have argued that parliament has not done enough, given the gravity of the court's findings.
