Maimane confirmed that the DA would lay charges against President Jacob Zuma, ministers Lynne Brown and Mosebenzi Zwane, as well as Eskom CEO Brian Molefe, reports Natalie Malgas.

Next week Thursday, Parliament is expected hear a debate on a motion of no-confidence in Zuma, and Maimane says he's been consulting with opposition parties and some ANC members.

According to Malgas, the opposition party has opted for the motion of no-confidence rather than a motion of impeachment because it requires less votes from MPs.

Maimane is also calling on all those implicated in the state capture report to resign, and for Eskom's board to be dissolved.
