President Zuma reluctant to step down

South Africa President Jacob Zuma said to SABC news that he had offered to go after June, but objected to the way the issue has been handled, underlining that he was not defying the African National Congress (ANC) party, but he disagreed with its decision to ask him to resign.

“It was very unfair to me that this issue is raised,” Mr.Zuma said. “Nobody has ever provided the reasons. Nobody is saying what I have done.”

Mr Zuma’s decision to keep a grip on power has put him at odds with South Africa’s deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa, the ANC’s new leader and his expected successor.
