Make Dlamini-Zuma Interim President and I'll step down

Article Image

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Friday denied press report about South African President Jacob's Zuma's demands and conditions for stepping down.

The failure by the ANC NEC and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa to recall Jacob Zuma on Wednesday only proves that the ANC is incapable of change‚ the Democratic Alliance says.

This is according to the Mail & Guardian‚ quoting ANC insiders.

Notably the condition that Dlamini-Zuma serve as interim president has been rejected by Ramaphosa, who has instead nominated Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu or National Assembly speaker Baleka Mbete for the role.

The Mail & Guardian is reporting that Zuma has attached a set of conditions should the party ask him to resign, including the retention of his appointments to the energy and state security portfolios.

But on Tuesday night, on the eve of the meeting, Zuma announced that he would establish a commission of inquiry into state capture.

Talk of Zuma's resignation had a positive impact on the rand, according to Business Day.

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni believes the option to appoint Dlamini Zuma as interim president should not be presented along factional lines.

At the meeting, ANC members said they did not discuss any action to have Zuma step down.

Mahlobo is seen as key to Zuma's desire to see the nuclear energy plan be implemented, and allegedly put pressure on government officials to rush the implementation of the plan.

This was mere speculation, newly elected ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule told reporters in East London, Eastern Cape Province, where the ANC will celebrate its 106th anniversary on Saturday.

She said that if Ramaphosa was truly serious about rooting out corruption‚ Zuma would no longer be the president of South Africa.
