The most important is on the streets, because that is
where the real engagement is going to happen, right now the mobilisation of

had enough of being treated like children,"
Mpofu suggested the political
environment was condusive for the EFF to get the masses on their side.
The Constitutional Court found
that Zuma and the National Assembly had violated the constitution by not
complying with the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's findings regarding paying
back some of the money spent on his Nkandla homestead for upgrades.
As one of the the primary orders
of the Court, Zuma was then given 105 days to repay the fiscus for the
non-security upgrades to his home.
The President subsequently
apologised to South Africans, saying he had followed bad legal advise.
Members of Parliament will on
Tuesday debate a motion to impeach President Jacob Zuma.
