However, according to opposition parties, the discussion between Zuma and Ramaphosa were not successful, with the South African president clinging onto his position as head of state.

Now, opposition parties were seeking to bring forward the motion of no confidence against Zuma, which Mbete Baleka announced was set for 22 February.

Maimane said Parliament should do its job and move on.

Reports were circulating, suggesting Zuma wanted immunity in exchange for his resignation, but Maimane said the embattled president should not be allowed to hold the country for ransom.

Maimane added if Zuma wanted extra protection, he can be locked up in a maximum security prison.
