Jacob Zuma, South African President may soon be out of a job as the African National Congress (ANC) has taken a decision to relieve him of his duties to the country.
According to NAN the congress had agreed this is the best line of action after a long meeting which reportedly lasted about 13 hours and included a faceoff between Zuma and his deputy.
Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, pegged to be Zuma’s successor was allegedly handpicked by Nelson Mandela as the man who would lead the country and since his election as head of ANC, Zuma’s job as president has been threatened.
An SABC broadcaster claims that Ramaphosa has informed Zuma about the ANC’s decision and that he has been given 48 hours to resign his position as president.
Reuters however is reporting that Zuma has no intentions to resign his position even though the country’s economy has been stagnated for the nine years he has been in power.
