He also brought up Ramaphosa's cosy relationship with the business world, as well as his tie-in to the Marikana massacre, the clearest indication yet that the EFF has found a line of attack against the new ANC president (and presumptive state president) who has otherwise enjoyed widespread public adulation since he won the elective race at the ANC's 54th national conference in December. We want to see him suffer until the end, for what he did to a generational mission.

The recent appointment of Sifiso Dabengwa onto the Eskom board was a "worrying sign", as Dabengwa is a close associate of Ramaphosa, Malema said.

He added that opposition parties would not be part of "discussions in the bush", referring to a national executive committee meeting of the ruling ANC which will likely decide President Jacob Zuma's future. "It's not over, we are going to fetch him from the village and go straight to Kgosi Mampuru prison".

But this week he celebrated as Zuma resigned as head of state, despite salivating over the possibility of leading a motion of no confidence against Zuma.

The office of the presidency has yet to make an official statement on the briefing. It was then tabled for a vote on February 22 by Speaker Mbete (a member of the ANC).

Winter Olympics TV Ratings Slide Downhill to Worst Night Yet
Even This Is Us is only averaging 16.6 million viewers per episode, with Live+7 DVR viewership included. All three cable networks aired 22 hours of programming for ratings purposes.


According to ANC and Parliament, Zuma's tenure is over.

"We are going to proceed tomorrow with a motion of no confidence".

Magaqa was killed in political violence in KwaZulu-Natal last year and suspended from the ANC for three years in the same case that saw Malema expelled.

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. The court comes again [and] says in the impeachment case, "you failed in your duties to develop the rules that will hold Zuma accountable". "So in Sindiso's name, this fight will continue", Malema said.
