Zuma to hear impeachment ruling

Written by on December 29, 2017

The Constitutional Court is on Friday expected to deliver a ruling regarding whether or not impeachment proceedings against President Jacob Zuma must be instituted.

According to News24, the political parties responsible for the impeachment application, including the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the United Democratic Movement (UCM) and the Congress of the People (Cope), are determined to have the court force Zuma to answer questions regarding the Nkandla debacle.

In September the court heard claims that Speaker Baleka Mbete should have impeached Zuma for the misuse of public funds at his Nkandla home, reports ANA.

The argument is that Zuma was not held accountable for his actions in the matter.

However, eNCA reports that Mbete has denied these allegations.

Reports assert that Zuma has survived eight votes of no confidence.
