President Jacob Zuma’s future will be decided by the ANC’s national executive committee which is expected to meet on Wednesday.
This was one of the key outcomes of last night’s meeting of the ruling party’s national working committee (NWC).
The party said in a statement last night that the NEC meeting will be convened on Wednesday.
“Following extensive deliberation the National Working Committee resolved to convene a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC), which is the highest decision making body of the ANC between Conferences, on Wednesday, 7th February 2018.
“Amongst the issues to be tabled to the Special NEC meeting will be preparations for the State of the Nation Address (SONA) and a report back from the National Working Committee on matters mandated to it, including management of the transition between the 5th and 6th administration of government and pending actions in Parliament,” said party National Communication manager Khusela Diko.
Yesterday’s NWC meeting was convened after the ANC’s officials failed to convince Zuma to step down on Sunday evening.
