Congress of the People (COPE) leader Mosiuoa Lekota has called on Parliament to remove President Jacob Zuma – accusing him of breaking the law.
Lekota briefed the media after he walked out of the National Assembly chamber.
He had earlier interrupted President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) by accusing him of violating the Constitution.
He was making reference to Tuesday’s Constitutional Court hearing where opposition parties accused President Zuma of being in breach of his oath of office by not implementing the remedial actions of the Public Protector on upgrades done at his Nkandla home.
Lekota says the house must act against President Zuma.
“Well the writing is that this house, the National Assembly must remove him [President Jacob] . We need somebody else who has not broken the oaths of office to lead our people. But this man is not the right man to lead us,” adds the COPE leader.
