The nation stepping up and asking the President to step down

On 31st March the Constitutional Court ruled that President Jacob Zuma failed to uphold his duties as prescribed by the Constitution in dealing with the findings of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela with regard to Nkandla.

The case was brought to the Constitutional Court by the EFF and DA, with Corruption Watch as an amicus curae which is a friend of the court. They argued that Public Protectors findings and remedial actions were binding and not just recommendations.
