Im­peachy keen

CityPress - - Voices -

The DA this week wasted ev­ery­one’s time in Par­lia­ment by in­sist­ing on tabling a doomed mo­tion to im­peach Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma for break­ing the law by al­low­ing Su­dan’s pres­i­dent, Omar al-Bashir, to leave the coun­try de­spite a court or­der pro­hibit­ing him not to. Even Siyahleba knew the mo­tion would not suc­ceed. But even more em­bar­rass­ing for the Blue Brigade was that some of their fel­low op­po­si­tion par­ties in Par­lia­ment re­fused to sup­port it. Most con­temp­tu­ous was Zuma, whose of­fice re­leased a state­ment say­ing he was meet­ing al-Bashir in China at that very mo­ment.
