South Africa’s Jacob Zuma Faces Likely Ouster in Parliamentary Vote

Vote of no confidence to be held on Thursday, likely bringing president’s nine-year tenure to an end

JOHANNESBURG—South Africa’s ruling African National Congress plans to vote on a parliamentary motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma on Thursday, the party’s treasurer general said, a move that is set to end the scandal-battered leader’s nine years in office.

The decision follows Mr. Zuma’s refusal to heed an order from his own party to step down. The ANC has around two-thirds of the seats in parliament, easily enough to pass a motion of no confidence.
