JOHANNESBURG - The Constitutional Court is expected to deliver a judgment on Friday on whether Parliament should institute impeachment proceedings against President Jacob Zuma.

The EFF and other opposition parties brought an application following the Constitutional Court ruling on the Nkandla matter. The court found that Zuma had failed to uphold, defend and respect the constitution.

The judgment was reserved in September.
