Cape Town, August 8: The fate of South African President Jacob Zuma will be decided today by a secret no-confidence motion. Alleged of several corruption charges, the SA President has spurred the anger of politicians, citizens against him due to increasing unemployment in the nation. The speaker of SA Parliament voting on the motion of no confidence in the president will be by secret ballot. Zuma has faced a no-confidence motion in past also but this game is really tough one due to its secrecy.
If the no-confidence motion succeeds Zuma and his entire cabinet would have to step down. Recession, unemployment, downgrading economy has prompted such situation. The main opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) party said the vote was "an opportunity for us all to stand up to corruption and get rid of President Zuma and his cabinet".
