South Africa's Zuma defeats no-confidence vote over economy

Zuma had the support of the African National Congress (ANC), which controls almost two-thirds of the assembly. He won with 225 lawmakers voting against the no-confidence motion. Ninety-nine voted in favour and 22 abstained, a result that mirrored his victory last March. Zuma did not attend the proceedings.
