CAPE TOWN - Opposition parties will approach the Western Cape High Court on Monday in their bid to remove National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete.

Agang SA, Congress of the People (Cope) and the United Democratic Movement (UDM) say Mbete is unfit for the position and has shown bias.

Agang SA says South Africa's democracy is in crisis and has accused the speaker of only serving to protect the interests of President Jacob Zuma.

The opposition parties don't want her to preside over debates relating to a motion of no confidence in Zuma.
