South Africa: ANC decides Zuma must go now


South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) has formally asked President Jacob Zuma to resign “for the sake of the country”.

But despite the ANC’s top leadership deciding to “recall” him “urgently”, the scandal-hit Mr Zuma was still in power on Tuesday.

He is expected to respond to the request on Wednesday, an official said.

He had already told them he was willing to stand down in the next three to six months, the official added.

Mr Zuma, who has been in power since 2009, has been dogged by corruption allegations.
