South Africa MPs to vote in secret on President Jacob Zuma no-confidence motion



South African MPs will vote in secret on a motion of no-confidence in President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday, the parliament's speaker has announced.

 
Baleka Mbete made the ruling after opposition parties took the case to the Constitutional Court.


They believe that in a secret ballot, MPs from the governing African National Congress (ANC) would be more likely to vote against the president.


Mr Zuma has survived several previous votes of no-confidence.
