Political analyst and a Professor at North West University André Duvenhage is 100% confident that Jacob Zuma will lose his vote of no confidence next week, and the country should prepare for his removal.
Zuma heads into next Tuesday’s ballot with his presidency edging on the brink, following ludicrous political decisions and involvement in the state capture saga with the Guptas.
“There is a huge tide against Zuma this time around. There are more and more senior ANC members coming out against him. The country is opposed to state capture and his links with the Guptas.”
“His removal would not cause the ANC to break up because he would have been removed by parliament, not the ANC.”
The professor believes that Julius Malema and his EFF party have had an irreversible influence on how Zuma is viewed by both the public and ANC members.
Speaking at the EFF’s fourth birthday celebrations in Durban this weekend, Malema claimed that he has canvassed 60 of the ruling party’s MPs to vote against JZ in the no confidence ballot.
“We may be in for big trouble. When I read the body language of South African politics, the next six months will be crucial for the ruling party,”
