South Africa's ruling African National Congress will hold an urgent meeting to discuss scandal-plagued Jacob Zuma's future as president. ANC leader Cyril Ramaphosa has been vocally lobbying for Zuma's removal.
South African President Jacob Zuma's tenure could be all but over by Monday, as top committee officials from theruling African National Congress (ANC) announced they were holding an urgent meeting on the issue.
Officials confirmed that the ANC's National Working Committee (NWC) had been summoned to meet at the party's Luthuli House headquarters in downtown Johannesburg at 2 p.m. local time (1200 UTC/GMT).
The NWC is then set to decide whether to call a meeting of the party's National Executive Committee, its top decision-making body, to push for a vote on ousting the 75-year-old president.
