Karima Brown: It is evident that the ANC is incredibly divided

On Tuesday, President Jacob Zuma survived his eighth motion of no confidence brought against him by the Democratic Alliance (DA).

The motion saw 198 Members of Parliament voting for Zuma to stay and 177 voting for him to go from a total of 384 votes.

Political analyst, Karima Brown says following last nights results, it is evident that the African National Congress (ANC) is incredibly divided.

If you looked yesterday, at the supporters of President Jacob Zuma, many of them believing that they are in a position of strength. Those who opposed Zuma also believing they are slowly chipping away at the ANC.

Brown adds that we also have to look at the numbers, over ten percent of ANC members of parliament voted against the president besides a three line whippery.

We have something like twenty eight people who voted actively against President Jacob Zuma with about nine abstentions explains Brown.

The fun fact out of that is that more ANC members voted against the president then there are members of parliament for the whole of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

Brown says the ANC faces a dilemma. She goes on to say that before the vote, ANC secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, refused to say whether or not the party will take action against members who voted against the party lines.
