Opposition Calls for Dissolving of South Africa's Parliament

South Africa's official opposition, the Democratic Alliance, has called for the dissolution of parliament, saying that South Africans have lost trust in the ruling African National Congress. This follows an eighth motion of no-confidence in President Jacob Zuma, held by secret ballot, which failed. Zuma has been accused of corruption, maladministration and for allowing his friends the Guptas to have a huge influence on ministerial and other appointments and the acquistion of key tenders.
