South Africa's parliament speaker receives Zuma's letter of resignation

President Jacob Zuma

The visibly agitated Malema said: "We must dispel the claims that Zuma gave free education to the country; free education was a result of the Fees Must Fall generation, which brought Zuma's government screaming and kicking to the table to concede on fee free education".

In his last two addresses to the nation, former president Jacob Zuma exhibited amnesia-like symptoms as he claimed that he was unaware of the reasons that led his own party to recall him. There shouldn't be an election of a president.

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule - a known Zuma ally - told a media briefing at the party's headquarters‚ Chief Albert Luthuli House‚ that the decision was taken after exhaustive, 13-hour discussions on Monday through the night and into the early hours of this morning. The elite squad earlier on Wednesday pounced on properties belonging to the Guptas‚ who have been fingered along with President Jacob Zuma in allegations of state capture.

"This parliament failed to discharge its responsibilities, and if anyone wants to be president of South Africa, let's go to the elections, let's get a new mandate".

"We are going to proceed tomorrow with a motion of no confidence". Let it be the 6th parliament, not the 5th parliament. It was equally censured by a Constitutional Court judg ment for failing to hold the executive to account. So we've been a parliament which has been busy over nothing accept the protection of Jacob Zuma.

Malema said Gigaba introduced the rot in the parastatals when he headed the public enterprises department.

After being voted in, Ramaphosa is expected to address Parliament.
