Zuma no-confidence motion set for parliament Thursday: ANC

AFP  |  Cape Town 

will hold a motion of no-confidence in on Thursday, the ruling said, signalling its determination to eject him from office after days of stalemate. "We have now asked the to proceed with the tomorrow in parliament... so that Zuma is then removed," ANC treasurer-general told reporters Wednesday. He said parliament, where the ANC has a large majority, would then "proceed to elect (Cyril) Ramaphosa as of the republic." Zuma was expected to respond later on Wednesday to the ANC's order for him to resign. "For us, as the ANC leadership, we can no longer wait beyond today," Mashatile said. "We don't want to keep waiting.

If Zuma at some point will respond he will respond, but we can't continue waiting. The decision has been taken and must be implemented." The power struggle over Zuma's departure has put him at loggerheads with deputy Cyril Ramaphosa, his expected successor, who is the new of the ANC.
