Zuma not going down without a fight

Written by on February 5, 2018

President Jacob Zuma has refused to resign, and insists on delivering the State of the Nation Address (SONA).

According to City Press, the ANC’s top leadership was on Sunday set to formally ask Zuma to step down.

While his possible resignation looms, Zuma believes that he has a constitutional right to deliver the SONA.

According to UDM leader Bantu Holomisa, Zuma emphatically stated that he will be delivering the SONA during his meeting with the ANC leadership.



There has been no official word on the outcome of the meeting.

It is therefore unknown whether Zuma will in fact step down.

EFF leader Julius Malema says that according to Zuma, he “didn’t do anything wrong to the country.”



Times Live reports that there has been a call for Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who was elected as president of the ANC in December, to assume the role of president of South Africa before the next general election in 2019.
