Motion of no confidence useless if vote not secret- Mangosuthu Buthelezi

Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader, Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi, says it's highly unlikely that ANC members will vote with opposition if vote of motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma is not secret.

The previous vote of motion of no confidence against Zuma failed because African National Congress (ANC) Members of Parliament (MPs) voted against it.

Only a few weeks ago, this motion was before the House, we voted against the President to step down it failed dismally because members of the ANC are majority.

I don't think that they will behave differently even if I'm told that Mr Malema says some members are now persuaded to vote with us.

Buthelezi also discourages the Democratic Alliance from marching to ANC headquarters to urge ruling party members to join them in the call to axe Zuma.
