"Ramaphosa opposed it and Gwede Mantashe argued that instead of removing Mbeki, let's call early elections" said Malema.

"The EFF will not participate in the election of a new president to replace Zuma because we do not want to legitimise anyone from the ruling party", Malema said.

"We can tell you know, Zuma will go to jail".

"Jacob Zuma's presidency has been characterised by all that is wrong in our society - grand corruption, crippling unemployment, and poverty on a scale like never before", DA leader, Mmusi Maimane said. We want to see him suffer until the end, for what he did to a generational mission.

He further accused the new ANC leadership of being "too scared" to tell Zuma why he was sacked. Mbeki, Zuma's predecessor, has had a distinguished post-presidential career as an African elder statesman; it is hard to foresee Zuma in such a role.

The EFF again protested as the Speaker of Parliament refused to allow their motion to debate the dissolution of Parliament.
