South Africa's top court: Parliament must launch proceedings that may oust Zuma

South Africa's top court ruled that the country's parliament did not hold President Jacob Zuma accountable for allegedly using state funds to upgrade his home and asked parliament to put in place a mechanism that may oust Zuma, Reuters reported.

"We conclude that the assembly did not hold the president to account," Judge Chris Jafta said. "Properly interpreted, Section 89 implicitly imposes an obligation on the assembly to make rules specially tailored for the removal of the president from office. By omitting to include such rules, the assembly has failed to fulfil this obligation."

The matter was taken to the court by the ultra-left Economic Freedom Fighters and other small opposition parties.

The ruling African National Congress said it will discuss the implications of the judgment at a Jan. 10, 2018, meeting. Zuma's position has weakened after South African Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa won the presidency of the African National Congress last week.

South Africa's rand has gained about 10% against the U.S. dollar since Ramaphosa's election.
