S. African president faces top ruling party officials

EFF calls for secret ballot in motion of no confidence on Zuma

EFF calls for secret ballot in motion of no confidence on Zuma

"The ANC has the power to recall President Zuma from his duties as President of the country before the SONA address and to send a clear signal that it is embarking on a new path - a path of true leadership, in tune with the needs of the people, and committed to good governance and the end of state capture".

A committee of top officials from the African National Congress (ANC), South Africa's ruling party, is due to meet on Monday after its six most-senior leaders spent Sunday afternoon with president Jacob Zuma, who is facing mounting pressure to step down.

According to the local IOL news website, party chairman Gwede Mantashe told worshippers at a church east of Johannesburg that they were meeting Zuma to consider options regarding his future as president of the country.

Zuma may yet be convinced to step down when the ANC top six meets with the beleaguered president on Sunday.

Former Gauteng premier and former Cope leader Mbhazima Shilow tweeted that this would be the second time in Zuma's career that he had refused to resign.

Mr Ramaphosa, the deputy president, defeated Mr Zuma's preferred candidate, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. He asked for prayers ahead of the meeting with Zuma this evening and said his visit to the church was the ANC's way of reporting back to citizens. "We want to see a situation where there is one centre with no tension‚ and the best possible way is if the state president exits‚" Mashatile told CNBC Africa in an interview on Friday night. "We are asking for you to pray for us, so that there is peace in that meeting". The group reportedly said the problem was not Zuma, but "white monopoly capital", and said they would not vote for the ANC in 2019 if Zuma goes.

Marchers, who are both pro and against Jacob Zuma, are expected to gather at Luthuli House this morning, with police and law enforcement agencies on standby. Instead it will be held on February 22‚ after the Budget is tabled in Parliament.
