What Zuma wants if he is to quit the presidency

12 January 2018

Ramaphosa's visit to Duncan Village was part of drumming up support as the ANC will hold its 106th anniversary celebrations at the Absa Stadium, East London, in the Eastern Cape province on Saturday.

"This is the home of the ANC".

ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa reportedly said the ANC was aware of discussions between Zuma and Ramaphosa about "how to we ensure Luthuli House remains a centre of power without undermining the office of the president of the republic", but said he knew nothing of Zuma's reported conditions.

These included telling the family and going to Madiba's resting place and informing him of the ANC's intentions.

"He has made reckless decisions‚ destroyed key public institutions‚ weakened our democracy and ruined our economy‚ all under the noses of the ANC leadership".

The Mandela family has since agreed for the ANC to return on 11 February for the visit to take place.

Magashule said the NEC had also resolved that he and Paul Mashatile‚ the newly elected ANC treasurer general‚ will step down from their government positions - respectively‚ Free State premier and Gauteng MEC of co-operative governance and traditional affairs - by the end of March‚ when the financial year comes to an end.

"In the top 6 some were linked to this and that faction and some didn't speak to each other".

Ramaphosa and the top leaders are also scheduled to visit acting AbaThembu king Azenathi Dalindyebo.

The rand has gained around 8% as investors bet Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa's election as leader of the ANC would push through business-friendly policies.

The party resolved at its national conference in December in Johannesburg that it would initiate amendments to the Constitution to achieve land expropriation without compensation‚ but gave no timeline.
