Zuma survives parliament’s no Confidence Vote

President Jacob Zuma of South Africa

A motion of no confidence in South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has been defeated in parliament despite a spate of recent corruption scandals.

An anti-corruption probe last week raised allegations of misconduct against Mr Zuma.

Mr Zuma’s African National Congress (ANC) has a huge majority in parliament and the opposition motion was defeated by 214 votes to 126.

Earlier this year, the Constitutional Court ruled that Mr Zuma had breached the country’s constitution by refusing to repay government money spent on his private home in rural Nkandla.

This followed another report by the anti-corruption watchdog.

The da also tabled a motion of no confidence in him then but it was defeated by 225 votes to 99.
