sandu1News24 reports that the SA National Defence Union (Sandu) has called for lawful means to remove President Jacob Zuma from office as it believes he is no longer fit to be the commander-in-chief of the defence force.  

Referring to the Constitutional Court ruling on Thursday that Zuma had failed to "uphold, defend and respect the Constitution", Sandu national secretary JG Greeff said:  Given the ruling made, the president can no longer be considered a fit and proper person to remain the commander-in-chief of the SANDF, nor can any of the parliamentary members who so stubbornly protected him in his questionable endeavours against the Public Protector’s findings, be considered fit and proper persons to hold office as members of Parliament."  Greeff called on the commander-in-chief to be removed from his post and for the relevant MPs to resign.  The union supported any call for mass action and other "lawful means" to remove Zuma from office.
