Tlouamma to face no confidence motion

Tlouamma to face no confidence motion

Agang SA Deputy President, Andries Tlouamma, is reportedly facing a motion of confidence from his own party, after withdrawing a similar claim against President Jacob Zuma last week.

According to CityPress, Tlouamma, one of the party’s two MP’s in the National Assembly, attributed the campaign against as being the result of “spirits who pretend to be Agang members” and “spiderwebs” leftover from the party’s founder, Mamphela Ramphele.

The paper also claims that Tlouamma had been trying to unseat to party’s remaining MP, Mike Tshishonga, and that Agang executives had written to National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete, informing her that Tshishonga’s membership had been terminated.

In an interview with Rapport, Tshishonga said that he was not aware of his membership ending, before going on to describe Tlouamma as a “a selfish person who can lie with a straight face”.

Tlouamma’s withdrawal of the motion against Zuma, out of protest for Mbete chairing proceedings, received wide scale criticism from opposition parties, who have accused Agang of wasting theirs and the country’s time.
