Resignation pressure on Zuma mounts

The six most heavy-weight officials in South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) met President Jacob Zuma on Sunday,  February 4, a senior party leader said, amid growing pressure for President to step down.

The party’s “top-six” leadership team is due to meet Zuma later on Sunday, party secretary-general and top-six member Ace Magashule told local media including news channel eNCA and the City Press newspaper.

Magashule said that the removal of Zuma as President of the country was not on the agenda, differing with reports citing unnamed sources in the City Press and Sunday Times.
