South Africa’s state broadcaster SABC tv reports — The ANC has given President Jacob Zuma 48 hours to resign or he will be recalled. Earlier, ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa and Secretary-General Ace Magashule’s motorcades were seen entering the Presidential Guest House in Pretoria.

Hours went by with no information coming out of Monday’s African National Congress’ (ANC) National Executive Committee meeting that is widely expected to finalise the fate of beleaguered South African President Jacob Zuma, who has refused his party’s requests to step down instead requesting for a three month extension before he departs.

Zuma allegedly refused to tender his resignation, with the ANC now having to navigate the humiliating prospect of bringing its own motion of no confidence in Zuma. Cyril Ramaphosa, the deputy president, took over the leadership of the ANC in December in a hotly contested election.
