South African MPs to hold secret vote on president

However, Chief Justice Mogoeng stopped short of ordering a secret ballot, saying it would be a violation of the separation of powers between the Constitutional Court and parliament.
She said that her decision was "to ensure the outcome of this very important vote is credible". She said her decision shows that parliament is responsive to the public. "Where there are concerns with the leadership of the ANC, the ANC will continue to engage and work with our people to resolve these challenges in the interest of the country as a whole".
Opposition parties have lobbied for months for an anonymous no-confidence vote to provide cover to disgruntled members of Mr Zuma's African National Congress who may fear voting against their leader in an open ballot.
There is also a leadership vacuum in the party, with no clear line of succession.
The ruling ANC party has a large majority in the house, and would choose the incoming national leader.
Up to 30,000 anti-Zuma protesters are expected to take to the streets of Cape Town tomorrow ahead of the vote to pressure MPs to vote the ANC president out of office.
From requesting a meeting with the speaker to giving her an ultimatum, the DA demanded that she make her decision on the secret ballot by 9am on Saturday - this, also, to no avail.
The no-confidence motion requires the backing of a majority of the 400 lawmakers to pass.
ANC MPs, who are an advanced cadreship of the party, will not allow the weakening of the state in favor of the opposition, said Mthembu.
The motion, in effect, seeks to dissolve the entire executive.
The caucus made it clear that it "would not be led by the opposition".
Several high-profile party stalwarts, including the former finance minister whom Zuma fired in March, have publicly called on him to step down.
Nomura analyst Peter Attard Montalto said in a note to investors last week that he did not expect the vote to succeed, even if there was a secret ballot.

"Admitting those problems takes us closer to the solution, but we know the source of our problems is not the opposition".
She said that as a loyal member of the ANC, the vote of no confidence was not "simple", and "retribution would be swift and costly".
