Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane says the impeachment debate was a unique Constitutional motion which has exposed the ruling party.
Opposition parties were defeated in the National Assembly, with only a total of 143 Members of Parliament voting in favour of removing Zuma.
According to Maimane, the 233 MPs who voted against the motion violated their Constitutional oath.
