Zuma Exit: ANC Resolves To Recall
President Jacob Zuma has reportedly been recalled by the ANC and has 48 hours to resign as state president.
The ANC national executive committee (NEC) has decided to recall President Jacob Zuma after a 13-hour marathon meeting in Irene on Monday, according to multiple reports.
There is still no official word from the party, however, despite assurances that the issue of the “transition” would be resolved on Monday.
But according to several reports, the ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) took a decision to recall Zuma as state president during a meeting that went on into the early hours of Tuesday morning.
According to the SABC, he has reportedly been given 48 hours to resign as state president or be recalled.
Zuma has asked for three months’ “notice” after which he will resign unconditionally, but the proposal was rejected by the NEC.
This was so that Zuma could introduce Ramaphosa to various international bodies like the African Union (AU) and the United Nations.
ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa has been in talks with Zuma for weeks, after the party decided that he could no longer be state president.
