President Jacob Zuma
Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma’s fate still hangs in the balance as the ANC National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting carried on into the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The meeting was called to discuss President Jacob Zuma’s fate.

Just before midnight, ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa left the venue in Irene followed by his motorcade, reportedly to deliver a message to Zuma - that the NEC wants him to resign within 48 hours or they will recall him.

Ramaphosa was accompanied by ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule.

NEC members never left the venue as they waited for feedback.

Ramaphosa and Magashule spent less than an hour at Zuma’s residence in Pretoria, before returning back to St George Hotel.

It’s not clear whether Zuma agreed to the deal or not.
Business Day reported that Zuma had asked to be given three months notice before he could resign.

Ramaphosa and Zuma had been meeting since last week, in an attempt to strike a deal.

A previous meeting between Zuma and ANC officials was fruitless as Zuma refused to resign.
