ECONOMIC NEWS - Apr 6th 2016, 09:37

Former finance minister Trevor Manuel has called on President Jacob Zuma to step down. 

“The violation of the key oath of office of the head of state... is a deep crisis. I think it’s in all of our interests that the president actually steps aside,” he said in an interview with Soweto TV.

Opposition parties failed to have Zuma impeached on Tuesday (5 April), following a Constitutional Court ruling that he had failed to uphold his constitutional obligations president.

The National Assembly debated a motion tabled by the Democratic Alliance to have the president removed from office.

A short clip of Manuel calling for Zuma to step down was uploaded onto YouTube by TimesLive.
