Zuma's future not on agenda of ANC NEC - Magashule

Gwede Mantashe

The two ANC leaders, Ramaphosa and Dlamini-Zuma, alongside the top six officials of the party touring KwaZulu-Natal‚ participated in a number of pre-8 January statement events, including the laying ofwreaths at the ANC's founding president John Dube at Ohlange high school in Inanda on Monday. "And the ANC meeting only ends tomorrow so there will be more headlines and that means rand volatility should continue", said trader at RMB, Jim Bryson. Earlier in the week, three of the NEC's 86 voting members, who also asked not to be identified, said the matter would be discussed.

The ANC's NEC, which was elected at the party conference in December, is meeting in the quiet coastal town of East London.

It was around 5 p.m. and Duarte was among the national executive committee members emerging from their first meeting in the ICC on Wednesday.

The allegations that the State has been usurped from the hands of its real owners, the people of South Africa, is of great relevance and therefore requires determination and security, so I decided that this matter can not wait any longer, adds the statement signed by the President.

The ANC's public support has declined under Zuma's leadership as voters have become increasingly disillusioned with a raft of corruption scandals, weak economic growth and an unemployment rate that has risen to almost 28 percent.

"Zuma deserves no credit for this decision".

It also brought tens of thousands of anti-Zuma protesters onto the streets in nationwide marches.

"The ANC can not avoid dealing with the future of Jacob Zuma. The leadership know the longer Zuma stays, the more damage it could do at the ballot box", said Susan Booysen, an author and professor at Johannesburg's University of the Witwatersrand.

Zuma's detractors say that his continued tenure as state president will severely hamper the ANC's efforts to decisively win the 2019 elections.

"The party will, I think, go for unity and compromises would have to be made".
