[WATCH LIVE] EFF responds to Zuma resignation

SOUTH Africa's most controversial presidential tenure looks set to end on Thursday when Parliament passes a Motion of No Confidence in President Jacob Zuma.

Malema said that the EFF would not be a part of the election of African National Congress president Cyril Ramaphosa on Thursday to the state presidency, but would be joining the State of the Nation address, due on Friday. As a result‚ at the first opportunity to lead a motion in parliament‚ EFF will call on the dissolution of parliament in favour of early elections.

Mashatile addressed journalists just after a 90 minute urgent meeting of the ANC parliamentary caucus where he delivered the news of Zuma's recall and the way forward, which includes ANC MPs voting to remove their former president and deployee in the highest office in the land.

"Furthermore‚ opposition parties should not be opportunistic and field candidates for position of President because none won elections and even when combined‚ do not constitute more than 50% of the vote".

"We do not want to legitimise anyone from the ruling party", Malema said.

United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa credited ordinary South Africans for Ramaphosa's election and joked that the ANC had finally managed to give Zuma a "shibobo".




CEO Kallie Kriel says the organisation would "take all reasonable steps" to ensure that Zuma is prosecuted by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

"We don't have a Jacob Zuma problem". "We want to go on with renewal and focus on the things that our people have been asking us to do".

"We can not be part of an illegitimate process". If the masses say "we love you with your constitutional violations, go back", we will come back.

"The Speaker's decision was made after consultation with the Leader of Government Business and the Chief Whip of the Majority Party and is subject to the National Assembly's Programme Committee agreeing to the scheduling of a sitting for February 15 2018‚" said Mothapo.

"The EFF will however participate in the State of the Nation Address and will robustly engage all the issues that will be raised there".
