Johannesburg - The Constitutional Court is expected to rule on Friday on the application brought by the EFF and other political parties around impeachment proceedings against President Jacob Zuma.

"We are expecting the full judgment tomorrow," said Eric Mabuza, the attorney for the EFF, UDM and Cope in the matter.

He said that they were informed on Thursday morning that the court would be sitting.

The court reserved judgment on the matter in September.

The opposition parties told the court that they wanted the establishment of a fact-finding ad hoc committee that would force Zuma to answer questions about his conduct during the Nkandla debacle.
