The Democratic Alliance’s (DA) failed motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma was an “imperialist-funded” attempt to “liquidate the African National Congress (ANC)”‚ the ruling party’s Women’s League said on Friday.
The ANC defeated the bid‚ tabled following the release of the public protector’s State of Capture report‚ defeated the motion 214 to 126‚ with 58 MPs not voting‚ on Thursday.
“The DA and its allies are under pressure to deliver on the mandate of imperialists forces to advance regime change in SA‚” Women’s League secretary-general Meokgo Matuba said.
“The aim is to have white supremacy rule which will economically marginalise black people and not allow land redistribution programs in SA.
“The imperialist-funded motion‚ attempting to reverse the gains of our democracy‚ has been rejected by Parliament‚ and the ANCWL welcomes the decision.”
She said the vote against the motion showed that Parliament‚ “representing the views of South Africans‚ … demonstrated its confidence in the state president‚ Jacob Zuma‚ and his collective”.
