Motlanthe won’t be drawn on Zuma no confidence debate
Last month, Motlanthe spoke at Ahmed Kathrada’s funeral, quoting the late stalwart’s letter in which he asked President Jacob Zuma to resign.
The United Democratic Movement and now the Inkatha Freedom Party have filed affidavits to the Constitutional Court to apply for a secret ballot in the motion.
He says he will not comment on the vote of no confidence matter at this stage.
“I’m here as part of the high-level panel and we don’t want to participate in that particularly because it’s a matter that’s covered with by the Constitution, it’s a matter that’s sub-judice. The court are going to make a determination on that issue.”
Motlanthe was speaking on Thursday at the Speaker’s Forum in Johannesburg after presenting a preliminary report on his panel’s investigation into the country’s key legislation.
