Boksburg - The National Union of Metalworkers of SA wants President Jacob Zuma to resign, general secretary Irvin Jim said on Friday.

“The congress called on President Jacob Zuma to resign with immediate effect because of his administration's pursuit of neo-liberal policies, such as the NDP (National Development Plan), e-tolls, labour brokers... and the track record of his administration which is steeped in corruption, patronage and nepotism,” he said at the union's special national congress in Boksburg, on the East Rand.

The Zuma administration had been marked by one scandal after the other, he said.
