President Cyril Ramaphosa to face his first motion of no confidence
The African Transformation Movement has claimed that their motion of no confidence in Cyril Ramaphosa is advancing to the next stage after National Assembly Speaker Thandi Modise confirmed that consultations are now being finalised.
It would be the first vote Cyril has faced as president, and it’s more than three years since South Africa last held a no confidence vote. Jacob Zuma survived by the skin of his teeth in 2017, only to be ousted from office just a few months later.
Modise agreed to hold the debate on Thursday.
The ATM earned two seats in Parliament during the 2019 elections, and the have used their voice to amplify negative sentiments about the President. Amongst other things, the ATM has been outraged by South Africa’s unemployment rate, the rampant threat of corruption, and worsening load shedding schedules.
