Beleaguered South African President Jacob Zuma Tuesday faced a no-confidence vote in parliament for a second time in less than a year and a legal bid to reinstate corruption charges against him.The DA has asked for a secret ballot, so ANC lawmakers who would like to see Zuma go can vote without fear of retribution -- but that is not expected to be granted.Steenhuisen said that in response to a DA campaign, more than a million online letters lobbying ANC lawmakers to support the motion against Zuma had been sent in the run-up to the vote.The DA is also pursuing an attempt in the High Court in Pretoria to reinstate charges of corruption against Zuma which were dropped in 2009, shortly before he became president.
