The ANC will on Tuesday provide an update on the outcomes of its special national executive committee (NEC) meeting.
A statement released by the party early on Tuesday said a media briefing would be held at noon.
The NEC‚ the highest decision-making body between conferences‚ met on Monday in Irene‚ Pretoria‚ to discuss President Jacob Zuma’s future. Sources told TimesLIVE that a decision had been taken at the meeting to recall Zuma.
The meeting followed protracted discussions between ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa and Zuma‚ aimed at managing Zuma’s exit from the Union Buildings. It is understood that Zuma has resisted the NEC’s call for him to step down.
#ZumaExit From what I understand: Zuma is already recalled. They communicated that to him (recall is a party process, not a legal one). Its a matter of him resigning or being fired through parliament. The ultimatum is on him resigning.
