The governing African National Congress (ANC) and opposition parties traded barbs in two hours of heated debate on Tuesday, before voting on the issue.

Mr Zuma has already survived seven no-confidence votes, called for amid repeated allegations of corruption.

This is the first to be held in secret ballot.

 

177 voted for Zuma’s ouster while 198 voted against the motion.
