Democratic Alliance (DA) Leader Mmusi Maimane together with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leadership have called for parliament sitting over discussion of the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday 13 February.

“A letter from the EFF will be sent to the office of the Speaker of the National Assembly Baleka Mbete reflecting this urgent call,” said Maimane in a statement.

“South Africa cannot continue to be held in limbo while Cyril Ramaphosa and Jacob Zuma, and their respective factions, continue to fight over the terms of Zuma’s exit, we need a swift resolution to this impasse as soon as possible,” he added.

Maimane has also called for ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa tO ensure that the motion of no confidence is debated and voted upon without any delay.

The DA said it will reject any amnesty agreement or special deal for President Zuma and also still believes that he must still face the 783 criminal charges illegally dropped over a decade ago and which the courts have now revived.
