Zuma 'like Saddam Hussein in a hole' after top court ruling

Section 89 of South Africa's constitution enables the National Assembly to remove the president with the backing of at least two-thirds of lawmakers if he seriously violates the law, is guilty of serious misconduct or lacks the ability to perform his functions.

It is not the first time Zuma has faced off with the court.
The ruling said parliament must now set out rules for impeachment proceedings, but it remains unclear whether this will lead to any impeachment.
The parties sought an order declaring that Mbete failed to put in place all appropriate mechanisms to hold Zuma accountable.
Earlier this month, the African National Congress - the controlling party in South Africa - elected Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa as its leader, setting the stage for him to become the next president of the country when Zuma's term expires in 2019. "By omitting to include such rules, the assembly has failed to fulfill this obligation".
The ANC will study the judgment and discuss its implications when its National Executive Committee meets on January 10, it said in an emailed statement.
The court reserved judgment on the matter in September.
The court also disagreed with Parliament's contention that it had held Zuma accountable.
The upgrades included a cattle pen, chicken run and a swimming pool that the police ministry famously described as a "fire pool" required for fire-fighting purposes.
"We have come to an end of a very eventful and productive year", the president said in a New Year's statement issued by his office.
The unanimous ruling by the 11-judge court said Zuma had failed to "uphold, defend and respect" the constitution by ignoring the findings of former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, whose office is an anti-graft watchdog with a strong constitutional mandate.
The governing African National Congress tried to use its majority in Parliament to shield Zuma from liability, but the Constitutional Court ruled previous year that he'd violated his oath of office by failing to comply with Madonsela's directive and ordered the Treasury to determine how much he owed.
