Parliament - The New York Times was dragged into Tuesday's debate in Parliament over whether President Jacob Zuma should be removed."We must never for a single day allow for international interference in matters of our country," said outraged ANC MP Mmamoloki Kubayi. after the publication ran a scathing editorial following the Constitutional Court ruling against Zuma."For the NYT to have the nerve to write about the leadership of our country - it is uncalled for," said Kubayi."Any loving South African... must stand and protect the democracy of our country," she said.On April 1, the NYT carried an opinion piece that said it was time for Zuma to step down."Cronyism, corruption and scandal have swirled around Jacob Zuma since before he became president of South Africa in May 2009, and the muck has only deepened since. "On Thursday, the country’s highest court ruled that he had violated the Constitution by refusing to pay back millions that the government spent improving his home," the column read.It referred to claims that some members of the wealthy Gupta family had offered MPs senior positions in government.Kubayi was speaking after Democratic Allliance leader Mmusi Maimane proposed that Zuma be removed, in line with Section 89 of the Constitution.Kubayi rejected the DA's proposal, saying it showed how low they were prepared to go. She added that impeachment - which is what the motion had been dubbed - was not even possible in South Africa."That is imperialistic."
