After surviving eight motions to remove him from office, former president Jacob Zuma faced the threat of a ninth no-confidence vote in February 2018.
The motion was brought by the EFF.
Not long after the motion, Zuma resigned.
“I fear no motion of no confidence or impeachment. They are the lawful mechanisms for the people of this beautiful country to remove their president,” he said in his exit statement.
Patricia de Lille
The internal battles between Patricia de Lille and the DA made headlines for months before she became the subject of a no-confidence vote in April 2018.
The DA intensified its efforts to part ways with De Lille after she publicly declared that she would resign from the party.
The odds seemed to be stacked against De Lille, but she survived the no-confidence vote by a single ballot.
