The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the Eastern Cape says it will submit a motion of no confidence in Premier Phumulo Masualle to the Speaker of the Legislature’s office in due course.

This comes as calls for Masualle to step down intensify.

The DA in the Legislature has also called on the ANC to remove Masualle and his cabinet, accusing him of failing to grow the economy and create jobs in the province.

EFF provincial coordinator Yazini Tetyana says, “Even after the announcement of the report by Public Protector he was supposed to step down because he presiding over a corrupt government so our view as the EFF he must not present that SOPA, he must step down. We going to put a motion that will block him from making that presentation of SOPA .”

Attempts to get comment from ANC chief whip in Bhisho have drawn a blank.
