South African Parliament Announces Debate Against President

South African Parliament Announces Debate Against President

President Jacob Zuma, right, and the country's Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa, at an extended Cabinet meeting on January 31 to prepare for the president's state of the nation address.

The party's top six were in Limpopo to meet with traditional leaders, while also preparing to meet with President Jacob Zuma on Sunday.

In recent weeks, calls for Zuma's removal have increased, with opposition parties asking National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete to schedule yet another motion of no confidence in Zuma debate.

The ANC's National Executive Committee mandated the top six to discuss with Zuma what the party is calling a "leadership transition".

The timing of the motion of no confidence later this month took into account a busy Parliamentary schedule, including a February 8 State of the Nation address to be delivered by the president, according to Mbete's office.

Zuma's prolonged stay at the Union Buildings is seen by some as detrimental to uniting the party ahead of the crucial 2019 general elections.

Matsuyama withdraws from Phoenix Open with left wrist injury
Spieth hit a 325-yard drive into the fairway and finished with a par for a 72. "It's not bad for the first day", Matsuyama said. The tournament estimated attendance at 655,434 a year ago , surpassing the home attendance of the Arizona Cardinals (513,741).

However some senior members have pushed for him to go in order to "avoid two centers" of power with Zuma as head of state and Ramaphosa as party president.

"The majority of parliament is going to say that Jacob Zuma will not be the president of South Africa because the biggest sentiment, even in the ANC, is saying that Jacob Zuma can not continue as president", EFF Deputy President Floyd Shivambu told eNCA television.

"That is why tonight we are meeting with President Zuma", said Mantashe to some applause in the St John Apostolic Faith Mission church on Sunday afternoon.

Mr Zuma has survived several no-confidence votes during his rule thanks to loyal voting by ANC MPs, but support for his leadership is on the wane. Although Zuma retains the support of a faction within the ANC, he no longer holds a top post.

"We are not going to that meeting to humiliate President Zuma or to rough handle him". There was no immediate comment from an ANC spokeswoman.
