UDM Leader Bantu Holomisa calls for interim government

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa is calling for an interim government to take over until the next election, after reports that those aligned to the ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule are planning a national shutdown.

Magashule is under pressure to step aside over fraud and money laundering charges.

Holomisa proposes that the ANC executive hand over power to the Constitutional Court.

“The Constitutional Court will, together with South Africans, discuss such as a thing as to what kind of interim government between now and 2024 [they want] and the ANC will have an opportunity to self-correct outside the government,” he says.

According to Holomisa, the interim arrangement can work with Parliament.

Holomisa says the executive arm of the party has messed up the government and must leave.
