Is Mbete deliberately delaying the secret vote?

Baleka Mbete is delaying this vote because she doesn’t want Jacob Zuma to go. I want Zuma out.

It is as clear as bright cloudless day that the Speaker is using delaying tactics to keep her president in office. In a true democracy, and if you had nothing to hide, a secret vote would not be a problem or concern.
Retaliation against MPs who vote to have the supercorrupt and totally incompetent Zuma ousted is totally unacceptable and borders on criminality. Yes for a secret ballot on August 8.

Think of all the cases against him that are still pending simply because he raises all manner of subterfuge to dodge their finalisation and note that he has lost all of those that have been finalised. The stakes are very high in this matter

It’s a double-edged sword against Zuma because, apart from the ANC MPs who want him out, in the ANC itself there are members who also want him out now.
Whatever anyone else may think, Baleka Mbete has been ordered to save Zuma from the guillotine.

She is instructed by Zuma to delay the announcement. She has been following orders all the time.
Baleka is delaying on purpose – however, the opposition has got her number.
I have a feeling that she might surprise most of us and agree on the secret ballot.
Mbete has been delaying her decision possibly because she feels she will be punished by her party. She has shown that she puts party before country. ANC members believe ANC first, everything else comes after that. No, it is not acceptable. It is disgusting. We can’t watch such scenes with our children.
Our children ask questions about this and we have to answer.

I think they should use condoms when they have sex. Kissing is okay, but never smoking or drugs.
