Zuma's exit not on ANC's meeting agenda

Zuma's exit not on ANC's meeting agenda

The failure by the ANC NEC and ANC President, Cyril Ramaphosa, to recall Jacob Zuma yesterday only proves that the ANC is incapable of change.

The DA will continue to pursue every possible avenue to hold Zuma accountable for the 783 counts of corruption against him as well as his role in state capture.

After the meeting ended, a member of the leadership who asked not to be named said the issue had not come up.

On Wednesday, ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule reportedly said the NEC had only discussed the party's 106 birthday statement, due to be delivered in East London on Saturday.

Japan has maintained the issue was solved under the 2015 agreement and any attempts to amend the deal could harm bilateral ties. Following Moon's remarks, the Japanese government reportedly filed a formal protest with the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo .

The ANC's public support has declined under Zuma's leadership as voters have become increasingly disillusioned with a raft of corruption scandals, weak economic growth and an unemployment rate that has risen to almost 28 percent. "Zuma deserves no credit for this decision". Despite hype in the media beforehand, Zuma's future appears not.

But the new collective is said to have opted to exclusively discuss matters related to this weekend's 8 January statement, which will set the tone for the leadership's goals.

In the first Throwback Thursday of 2018, we take a look at what Zuma previously said on the president of the ANC, who is not the president of the country.

A smiling Ramaphosa looked at ease when journalists were briefly allowed into the meeting for a photo opportunity. But in recent days, it has slipped back to around R12.40, as the initial exuberance over Ramaphosa's victory gave way to the realisation that the odds of new market-friendly policies are hostage to a deeply divided ANC national executive committee (NEC).
