Motion of no confidence in Zuma fails
We must learn from Fransman case says Western Cape ANC
And, the call for free education is more relevant than ever before


A motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma has failed, once again.

The motion was brought by the Democratic Alliance yesterday following the release of the Public Protector's State of Capture report.


The motion failed when 214 MPs voted against it and 126 voted in its favour. One MP abstained and 58 did not vote.

Debating the motion in the National Assembly yesterday, political parties blasted Zuma, calling him corrupt and a Gupta president.


There are lessons to be learnt from the five-year suspension of provincial chairperson Marius Fransman, the Western Cape African National Congress said yesterday.

The ANC's national disciplinary committee on Thursday announced it had found Fransman guilty on two counts of misconduct, and suspended his party membership for five years.

Party members had to appreciate that the party had structures and that processes had to be respected, spokesperson Yonela Diko said yesterday.

Leaders criticising each other in public, instead of paying each other visits to discuss their differences, reflected a "lack of deeper and meaningful relationships".


The call for free education is more relevant now than ever before, Higher Education and Training Deputy Minister Mduduzi Manana said yesterday.

He said that students were now seeing the value in education and [it] has them class. And I think it will be much sooner than may be expected."

He said through Nsfas, government has over the past 25 years spent R59-billion on the education of 1.5-million needy students.
