It’s still unclear what the outcome of an African National Congress’s (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) meeting on Friday night is following reports that a motion to recall President Jacob Zuma was discussed.
News24 reported the motion to recall Zuma was raised by newly elected NEC member David Masondo and Deputy Minister of Agriculture Bheki Cele.
This is despite ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule insisting that the recall of the president was not on the NEC agenda.
The NEC was meeting for its first official lekgotla post the party's 54th national conference which saw Cyril Ramaphosa elected as the new party president.
Magashule told reporters that top of the agenda for the leadership were plans for the year ahead, the January 8 statement, conference resolutions and racism in schools.
