UPDATE: ANC puts motion of no confidence against Zuma

In describing Zuma's departure, Malema said the former president's "legacy of corruption" is now in the "dustbin of history".

"We are [still] going to the House".

"We can tell you know, Zuma will go to jail".

Yesterday, the speaker agreed to move their motion forward to February 15 and to incorporate ANC amendments that outline the governing party's reasons for Zuma's removal.

In unexpected statements to the television network SABC, the president reiterated his innocence, his disagreement with the determination of the leadership of his party and said he felt like a victim.

But this week he celebrated as Zuma resigned as head of state, despite salivating over the possibility of leading a motion of no confidence against Zuma.

Whether Zuma is toppled by a no confidence vote or he resigns, he will keep his pension and the other emoluments of a former president. We want to be there for the victory. Mbeki, Zuma's predecessor, has had a distinguished post-presidential career as an African elder statesman; it is hard to foresee Zuma in such a role.

However, Malema said the EFF would be in the House, and warned journalists to "wait and see" what the party's MPs would do during the sitting on Thursday.

Malema continued: "The constitutional court found that this parliament did not play its role, particularly when it came to holding Zuma accountable".

This is when he started seeing the first signs of state capture, Malema said.

A State of the Nation Address is set for the day.

"I am not allowing members to abuse this sitting", the Speaker objected.

Magaqa was killed in political violence in KwaZulu-Natal last year and suspended from the ANC for three years in the same case that saw Malema expelled.

A more than willing Julius Malema held a press briefing to respond to Zuma's question: What did I do wrong? It was scheduled for 11:00 to give Zuma a chance to deliver his expected resignation address, which should have happened at 10:00.
