President Zuma has lost control and must be recalled - Holomisa

United Democratic Movement (UDM) leader Bantu Holomisa has said that President Jacob Zuma has lost control and should be recalled with immediate effect.

According to Holomisa, Zuma's decision to redeploy Pravin Gordhan to the finance portfolio, after political pressure, shows that he is a lame-duck president.

He added that electoral legislation should be amended to give South Africans the power elect their own president.

Listen to the full conversation from Talk At Nine with Gushwell Brooks:

What is clear now is that the ANC is panicking beyond comprehension.

He has lost control and the only advisable thing the ANC should do is to recall him. If the ANC drag their feet, South African voters must punish them.
