Sisulu's response was unintelligible. The EFF leader quickly moved on to Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma adding she would be among the first to vote and needed to give South Africa hope.

Gardee asked:

"Is she game or not?"

To which Sisulu responded Dlamini has to be because the vote was a matter of national importance. The tourism minister added that MPs must impeach the president any time they have been found lacking and Ramaphosa's case was no different.

Full of questions Gardee probed where former health minister Zweli Mkhize and Dlamini-Zuma can work together for the sake of South Africans.
