Parties in intense lobbying campaign for ANC MPs to eject Zuma
Intense lobbying ahead of no-confidence vote as the ANC’s top six prepare to seek support from the party caucus
Tension and uncertainty gripped the ANC caucus on Monday as opposition parties mounted an intense lobbying campaign to try to get governing party MPs to vote in support of a motion to unseat President Jacob Zuma.
The debate is due to take place on Tuesday afternoon.
National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete’s surprise decision to allow MPs a secret ballot emboldened the opposition, who believe the move would allow some ANC MPs to support the DA-sponsored motion to end Zuma’s reign as president.
The rand gained more than 15c to the dollar on Monday almost immediately after Mbete’s announcement‚ trading at R13.1985 from R13.4183.
