Motion Against South Africa's Ramaphosa a Looming 'Iceberg'?

The pending motion of no confidence against Cyril Ramaphosa might not seem like a big deal, but the African Transformation Movement (ATM) might be the exact vehicle the Zupta cabal will try to use to remove President Cyril Ramaphosa, writes Mike Abel for the Daily Maverick. The ATM says that it is bringing the motion based on the fact that Ramaphosa "misled" the nation around planned power outages and the current economic situation. The motion had been scheduled for December 3, 2020 but was postponed because the ATM has made a last-minute court application to allow a secret ballot on their proposal.
