South Africa's Constitutional Court found President Jacob Zuma in breach of the constitution for using public funds to upgrade his private homeThe South African parliament will next week discuss an opposition motion to impeach President Jacob Zuma after the highest court ruled that he flouted the constitution, an official said Sunday. The speaker of parliament Baleka Mbete told journalists that the move by the Democratic Alliance (DA) would be considered on April 5. The DA is pushing for Zuma to be impeached after the Constitutional Court on Thursday ruled that he had “failed to uphold, defend and respect the constitution” in ignoring the ombudswoman’s directives to repay a portion of public funds used to upgrade his private residence.
