Zuma is going nowhere for now

2017-07-05 06:01

THE ruling by the Constitutional Court that the speaker of Parliament has the authority to allow a no-confidence vote to take place via secret ballot was known by Speaker Baleka Mbete all along.

She deliberately steered away. The fact that, together with President Jacob Zuma she is liable for all legal fees, is justice delivered.

The ANC avers that it will never support a no-confidence motion tabled by the opposition.

Encouraging the ANC parliamentarians to vote with their conscience will not make any difference as opposition parties understand very well that
caucus decisions will be abided by.

The truth is that many ANC parliamentarians have stained fingers, as is so often alleged by former parliamentarian Vytjie Mentor.

Significantly, the ANC parliamentarians are guided by belly politics and not their conscience.

Politicians sing for their supper. Zuma is going nowhere for now.JAY JUGWANTH
