Looming Presidential Impeachment

President is the head of state. He or she is the Commander in Chief of the Armed forces. The president is the head of the executive in any government and therefore responsible for any actions by the government.

The president in any control enjoys tenure of office but at the same time he or she can be removed from office through a legal process. The legal process of removing a serving president from office is called impeachment.

The constitution provides for conditions under which a president can be impeached. Among some of the conditions is gross misconduct of office. A president deemed to be corrupt is said to have gross misconduct and therefore qualify to be impeached.

The current South African president cyril Ramaphosa is about to be impeached over allegations of corruption. He is accused to cover theft of billions of shillings. This comes after Ramaphosa having had hard time him when he was jailed some time back.

If the allegations will be validated by a court of law, then there is a looming Presidential Impeachment in South Africa. Cyril Ramaphosa will not be first president to be impeached as there has been others presidents in the world who have ever been impeached with an example of Donald Trump.
