Johannesburg - The leadership of the ANC has asked President Jacob Zuma to take a break, the party said on Friday.
“The leadership of the African National Congress has asked President Zuma to take time off from work following an intense elections campaign,” spokesman Zizi Kodwa said in a statement.
He did not elaborate, and could not immediately be reached for more information.
In his statement, Kodwa said Zuma briefly appeared at the ANC Lekgotla in Irene on Friday, where he greeted delegates and delivered a short political overview speech before leaving.
The president was scheduled to address National Education Health and Allied Workers' Union special national congress in Benoni on Friday afternoon. - Sapa
