Another defiant ANC MP has joined those that want president Zuma out of office come August 8. The likes of Pravin Gordhan, Matthews Phosa, and Dr Makhosi Khoza have all threatened to vote against the president.
Mondli Gungubele says he will still vote for President Jacob Zuma to go when the motion of no confidence is heard in Parliament next month.
“Against the facts at my disposal, I say it again, I don’t have confidence in the president. If the 8th [of August] finds me in this position I will vote consistently with my attitude,” Gungubele said.
Gungubele is part of a growing number of ANC MPs who have publicly called for Zuma to step down. Others include Pravin Gordhan and Makhosi Khoza.
Gungubele was also summoned to the party’s headquarters at Luthuli House and warned to stop publicly pronouncing on Zuma’s future.
The former Ekurhuleni mayor has also come to the defence of Khoza, who is facing a disciplinary inquiry after calling for Zuma to go and writing to Mbete to allow for a secret ballot when the motion is heard on August 8.
“I am challenging anybody, discipline Makhosi, take her to the DC, what will it change,” he asked.
