The African National Congress (ANC) secretary-general Ace Magashule and his deputy Jessie Duarte have personally delivered the party’s recall letter to President Jacob Zuma at his offical residence in Pretoria.
The national executive committee (NEC) meeting, which lasted until early on Tuesday morning, saw both supporters and critics of the president state their cases for and against his removal.
Zuma’s fate was decided after a confusing few days, characterised by back and forth statements from the ANC and the Presidency, which had to defend itself against unconfirned reports around his proposed ousting.
The vehicles transporting Magashule and Duarte left the president’s residence about 30 minutes ago, after spending about an hour there.
It is understood that the pair have personally delivered a letter to President Zuma, conveying the ANC NEC’s decision to recall him.
