Pray for Us - Mantashe Ahead of Top 6 Meeting With Zuma

President Jacob Zuma will reportedly be formally asked to step down as president of the country by the ANC's top officials today, the City Press reports.

On the other hand, Zuma has become a liability and many members want the president to leave soon so the ANC, can rebuild ahead of 2019 elections.

Zuma, who is battling corruption allegations, has been in a weakened position since he was replaced as leader of the ANC in December by Cyril Ramaphosa, the deputy president.

"We want to ensure that there is stability in the country and stability in the ANC".

"All I can say is that the president has agreed to see us".

The meeting comes at a time when there are growing calls for Zuma to step down or be removed.

It added that the meeting could also determine whether Zuma will deliver the state of the nation address scheduled for Thursday.

The ANC top six, led by Ramaphosa, were in Limpopo on Sunday meeting Vhavenda King Ramabulana, BaPedi King Sekhukhune, BaLobedu Queen Modjadji and chiefs of the Shangaan and Tsonga people.

The ANC chair insisted that the intention behind the meeting was not to humiliate Zuma but instead to discuss what was best for South Africa. "I don't know what they want, they must go and deal with their organisation and with their things and allow the ANC to deal with its matters", said Cele.

"The NWC will meet tomorrow", ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule said by phone, referring to the national working committee that's one of the highest decision-making structures.

Mantashe said they needed to be able to look at various options and the consequences of each option.

Zuma has been deserted by many party members after his position was taken over by Ramaphosa, who has been lobbying to force him to resign.

Lukhona Mnguni, political analyst at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, said Zuma could take his chances and wait for the no-confidence motion rather than decide to resign.
