Cape Town - A Parliamentary debate on a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma is set to be held on August 8.

Last month, the Constitutional Court ruled that National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete has the power to decide on whether the vote can be secret. She has yet to make her decision.
