BuzzSouthAfrica can confirm that the vote of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma will be a secret ballot vote.
The Speaker of the National Assembly, Baleka Mbete decided to allow the 8th August Motion of No Confidence in President Jacob Zuma to be conducted via secret ballot.
Confirming this, the Democratic Alliance (DA) party welcomed the Speaker’s decision and asserted that ANC MPs no longer have any excuse for not doing away with Mr Zuma as South Africa’s President.
“ANC MPs now have no excuse. They must use their vote tomorrow to stand up to grand corruption and vote to remove Jacob Zuma as President.
“While the removal of Jacob Zuma will not solve every problem in our nation, it would be the beginning of a national rebuilding project that is urgently required.
“The DA’s vote will be no secret – we will vote to fire Jacob Zuma tomorrow,” stated the party.
