EFF: Zuma Is Gone, Now Dissolve Parliament

President Jacob Zuma briefs the nation on his decision after the ANC NEC decided to recall him

Zuma, though, resigned at the 11th hour, paving the way for acting president Cyril Ramaphosa to be sworn in as new head of state on Thursday.

He further said that the party would be supporting the Democratic Alliance's motion to dissolve parliament, so that fresh national elections could be held.

"The EFF will not participate in the election of a new president to replace Zuma because we do not want to legitimise anyone from the ruling party", Malema said. After his dismissal from the ANC in 2012, Malema formed the Economic Freedom Fighters, which relentlessly opposes Zuma.

Zuma painted himself as a victim as he explained that he had not been told by the ANC top officials why he had to resign.

Authorities searching for missing 4-year-old SC girl
The workers found a man - later determined to be Evans - asleep in the vehicle with a small girl in the passenger seat. At that point, the suspect gave the little girl to the police chief, telling them he had to get his ID from the auto .

Of course, right up to when the vote is taken, Zuma could resign.

Responding to opposition party Members of Parliament, Ramaphosa said he would strive for parties to work together to improve the lives of South Africans, agreeing with the Pan Africanist Congress that "it is not yet Uhuru" after the party's leader urged him to deal with the land question.

Ramaphosa has set the tone for his new role as South Africa's president.

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.

Mr Barkho also alleges cruise security staff are attempting to destroy images and footage from the incident. His 20-year-old son said "a lot of people are bleeding, a lot of people down".

"People were scared of him and did not want to contest him, and then Zuma was the only available person who was ready to challenge Mbeki, because he had nothing to lose", Malema told the M&G.

None of the ANC MPs came out in Zuma's defence during this meeting, one of those present said.

Somewhere in between his defiant afternoon interview with the SABC and his nearly measured suit-and-red-tie resignation speech in the later hours of Wednesday evening, Jacob Zuma must have had a Damascene conversion.
