CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - South Africa's parliament will debate a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma on Nov. 10 following a report by the anti-graft watchdog over allegations of influence-peddling, opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said on Thursday.

The report stopped short of conclusive findings against Zuma but is likely to add to calls for him to resign.
