South Africa's Zuma faces another no confidence vote February 22

South Africa's Zuma faces another no confidence vote February 22

Parliamentary speaker Baleka Mbete chose to hold the vote in response to a request from the Economic Freedom Fighters, an opposition party that has often disrupted proceedings in parliament because of corruption allegations against the president, Mbete's office said.

The EFF said the sooner Zuma was ousted the better, for not just opposition parties, but for the country as a whole.

South Africa's parliament will vote on a motion of no confidence in embattled President Jacob Zuma on February 22, the parliamentary speaker said Friday, in an escalation of pressure on the leader to resign after a series of scandals.

Parliament - The State of The Nation Address (SONA) will be delivered by whoever the South African President is on February 8, Parliament's presiding officers said on Thursday. "Ms Mbete had also consulted relevant stakeholders".

However, the Speaker declined the DA leader Mmusi Maimane's request to have the State of the Nation Address postponed.

The president has faced numerous allegations of corruption since taking office and has been called to step-down within the ruling African National Congress, which has said it would remove him as president before the end of mid-2019.

She said this as the city continued to brace itself for "Day Zero" - the day when taps will be shut due to depleted dam levels - which has been brought about by the worst drought to hit the city in years.

Opposition parties, including the EFF, UDM, IFP, Cope and ACDP, were in the process of holding a joint press briefing on Friday afternoon.

Zuma could leave office either by resigning, through losing a motion of no-confidence in parliament or impeachment proceedings. "We categorically request that this must be stopped", said Bafana Nzuzo, chairperson of the Unemployed People's Trust.

But Parliament has said he will deliver the speech.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa succeeded Zuma to the ANC presidency following a tough battle, defeating the former African Union Commission chair Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, the president's former wife. "Because that will be a waste of time to listen to Jacob Zuma and a few days later we are debating whether he is suitable or not to be president".
