There could be a light at the end of the tunnel and  fresh sigh of relief to many, after the huge embarrassing disappointment suffered by millions of politically dedicated South Africans yesterday. Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane says that his party will bring a motion to dissolve Parliament.

The DA’s motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma failed on Tuesday, with just 21 votes separating the two sides.

A total of 177 Members of Parliament voted in favour of the motion, while 198 voted against it and nine abstained.

As South Africa digests those results, ANC heavyweight Lindiwe Zulu says it is unacceptable that some party members voted with the opposition.
