Magashule: ANC NEC hasn't discussed replacing Zuma

Newly-elected ruling African National Congress party president Cyril Ramaphosa greets supporters attending the party’s 106th birthday celebrations in East London South Africa Saturday Jan. 13 2018. Ramaphosa is to address supporters for the Magashule: ANC NEC hasn't discussed replacing Zuma

Several ANC insiders familiar with negotiations on Zuma's future told the Mail and Guardian that one of the key requirements would be that ANC MP Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma takes over as the country's interim president after he steps down.

Ramaphosa, who was accompanied by some members of the ANC's National Executive Committee, arrived to loud cheers of a small crowd and proceeded to visit four homes in Ward 06 of the area.

"If such negative scenario unfolds, optimism among investors may fade leaving the rand vulnerable to a round of profit taking", he told CNBC via e-mail Friday. This includes Energy Minister David Mahlobo and State Security Minister Bongani Bongo.

The ANC president's stamina was really put to test as he then welcomed Kenya's president, Uhuru Kenyatta, of the Jubilee Party.

A process reportedly has been initiated to persuade Zuma to resign "gracefully".

Earlier, several NEC members almost missed out on the meeting as security at the Mandela homestead did not recognise them.

An elderly female resident, Nini Zenzile, confronted Ramaphosa about the spate of crime in the area, recounting instances of abuse by her troublesome son and the alleged lack of police response when residents report crime.

Newly elected ANC secretary general Ace Magashule addressed the media on Friday‚ in a state-of-readiness briefing ahead of the party's annual January 8 statement‚ which will be delivered by ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa on Saturday.

"The NEC was emphatic that we must urgently implement the resolution to pursue expropriation of land without compensation with due regard to safeguarding and growing the agricultural sector and ensuring food security‚" Magashule said.

According to The Citizen, analysts believe it is far likelier that Zuma will be given the option to resign rather than being recalled for two reasons.
