#SecretBallot: When The Majority Fails The Majority

Screengrab from my cellular device

What a wonderful way to spend a Tuesday.

The Vote of No Confidence in South Africa took place today in the hopes to remove president Jacob Zuma, however the results were unpleasant to those aware of the corrupted presidents reign.

Herman (2017) writes the results : 198 against vs 177 for the vote and 9 abstained.

This brings forth the question of how can members in parliament stand by a president charged with a groundbreaking 783 criminal charges?
