Cape Town – The failed motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma was nothing but a strategy to liquidate the ANC, the party's Women’s League said on Friday.

The motion, brought by the Democratic Alliance, was debated in Parliament on Thursday, and failed after 214 MPs voted against the motion and 126 voted in its favour.

ANC Women’s League secretary general Meokgo Matuba said they welcomed the rejection of the motion.

"The DA and its allies are under pressure to deliver on the mandate of imperialist forces to advance regime change in SA. The aim is to have white supremacy rule which will economically marginalise black people and not allow land redistribution programmes in SA."

She named a number of government successes under the ANC.

"The imperialist funded motion, attempting to reverse the gains of our democracy has been rejected by Parliament and the ANCWL welcomes the decision.

"Parliament representing the views of South Africans has demonstrated its confidence in the State President Jacob Zuma and his collective."

The league applauded the rejection of the motion.

"Divergent to the apartheid government, the ANC-led government is a champion of women emancipation and has interests in the lives of our children. The DA and its allies have no interests in the development of the vulnerable in society, but to deliver on the imperialist mandate of regime change in SA," Matuba said.
