A senior lecturer in Public Law at the University of Cape Town, Dr Cathy Powell, says the fact that Jacob Zuma is no longer President of the African National Congress (ANC) could negatively affect the dynamics of the so-called impeachment case.
The Constitutional Court will deliver judgment in the case on Friday morning.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and other parties brought the case in a bid to seek impeachment proceedings against Zuma with regard to upgrades to his private home in Nkandla.
This is on grounds that no action has been taken against Zuma after the court ruling in March 2016 which found that he failed to uphold, defend and respect the Constitution.
Powell says, “There are definitively a few changes on how people are going to react, but I can’t predict exactly what they would be. What we are dealing with now are oaths, not so much what the President should be doing, but what the National Assembly should do. One he will pay back the money, and two, to make the institution of this country works.”
