Political Analyst Ongama Mtinka says the proposed motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma is a move by opposition parties to show they are activists of corruption.
Speaking on SABC Prime-time News, Mtinka says the proposal to postpone the State of the Nation Address is an opportunistic move by opposition parties as they are using ANC internal politics to halt Zuma from delivering the SONA, which is scheduled for next Thursday.

“Internal ANC politics are not reason enough especially by the opposition parties to actually propose that the State of the Nation Address be rescheduled,” says Mtinka.
He emphasized that should Zuma deliver the SONA it gives ammunition to those inside the ANC that want Zuma out.
“…They will be able to say with President Zuma continuing to be in office it will always keep the option open for opposition parties to call for a motion of no confidence.”
