South Africa's Ramaphosa says working to resolve issue of Zuma's future

A rose has been named after former President Nelson Mandela

Top leaders of the ruling African National Congress won't take part in events leading up to a big rally Sunday that will be addressed by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, the party said Friday. Zuma, whose presidency has been marked by numerous scandals, has stubbornly refused to budge.

South Africa's deputy president consolidated his control of the government on Sunday, promising to conclude a power transition in which he would succeed President Jacob Zuma, who faces widespread calls to resign because of corruption allegations.

On Tuesday, Parliament's presiding officers announced that Thursday's State of the Nation Address had been indefinitely postponed amid fears that it might descend into chaos. The ANC is running on an anti-corruption ticket.

On Friday, a judicial commission that will investigate alleged state corruption during Zuma's tenure moved a step closer to beginning its work.

It is widely expected that Zuma will resign this weekend or early next week, after increasing pressure from ANC leadership structures following Ramaphosa's victory at the party's elective conference in December. It is Madiba's example that should inform our approach to the tasks that we must undertake.

The ANC called off a special meeting of its executive body to discuss Zuma's future scheduled for last Wednesday after the president and Ramaphosa agreed to hold talks for a transition of power.

"The successful resolution of this matter has significant consequences for the country and for the African National Congress".

"Making sure that we are doing things in an orderly manner, in a purposeful manner, in a manner of focusing on the end result". He must pay the legal fees himself.

But Ramaphosa put paid to all the claims when he declared: "It is the interests of you, our people, that must be put first, and not the interests of anyone else". "Because our people want this matter to be finalised, the national executive committee will be doing precisely that".

"We have a new mood right across the country".

In the last several years, South Africa's political turmoil has also led to economic uncertainty.

As other users commented on the picture, she responded and said "Kuzoshuba ungalwi nomuntu ongalwi nawe", which loosely translated means: "It's going get rough, don't fight with someone who is not fighting you". Denis Goldberg was imprisoned in Pretoria.

Ramaphosa told ANC members and supporters in Cape Town that the ANC knows they want "closure" on the speculation about whether Zuma will be recalled by the party.
