Cape Town – A successful no confidence-motion in Parliament that may unseat President Jacob Zuma could restore South Africa’s ratings credibility, said the Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) in a statement on Monday.

On Tuesday April 18 during a special sitting of the National Assembly members of Parliament will debate and vote on the ninth motion of no confidence since Zuma has become President in 2009. 

The previous motions were among other things as a result of exorbitant security upgrades to Zuma’s homestead in Nkandla, his firing of Nhlanhla Nene as finance minister and his closeness with the Gupta family. The President easily survived all these motions as ANC MPs toed the party line.
