The court application‚ just after lunch on Thursday‚ will revolve around the conduct of Zuma associated with the Nkandla scandal‚ and “lying to Parliament on numerous occasions”.

The action comes almost one year‚ to the day‚ that the highest court in the land handed down judgement in the Nkandla saga.

“We approach the Constitutional Court as a last resort based on the belief that Zuma’s conduct around the Nkandla matter‚ both inside and outside of Parliament‚ renders him unfit to hold the high office of President of the Republic of South Africa‚” said a statement from EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi. — Tiso Black Star Group
