South Africa’s main opposition announced on Sunday that it will introduce a no-confidence motion against President Cyril Ramaphosa next Tuesday after an independent commission confirmed the charges against him.

“Ramaphosa’s position as head of state has become untenable,” said the country’s three main opposition parties, the Democratic Alliance (DA), the Fighters for Economic Freedom (EFF) and the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP).

A three-member independent commission headed by former Supreme Court Chief Justice Sandile ngcobo said in its report that the head of state violated the constitution and charged relevant authorities with the 2020 theft at his farm. It concluded that he may have abused his oath of office. In “Phala Phala “ he committed a large sum of money in the northeastern part of the country.

In a statement, the Forum emphasized that the panel’s conclusions provided sufficient evidence for Congress to proceed with the impeachment of Ramaphosa, noting that “voting the independent commission’s recommendations would hold the executive branch accountable.” It violates Congress’ constitutional duty to allow.

“Previous decisions by the Constitutional Court have accused Congress of lacking control and vigilance over the executive branch,” he continued.

“In the interest of fairness, transparency and justice, Ramaphosa must step down from his seat of power so that the investigation can proceed without fear of retaliation or consequences,” the parties said.

Likewise, the Partisan organization has supported ongoing investigations by the Republic Ombudsman Office, the South African Reserve Bank, the South African Police Service and all other agencies tasked with holding Ramaphosa accountable for the many crimes allegedly committed in Phala Phala expressed deep concern over the delay.”

Calls for the resignation of South Africa’s president have grown since the outrageous reports about the scandal were released. The panel said these facts constitute a “serious violation” of the country’s laws and constitution.
