The ANC has given president Jacob Zuma 48 hours to quit as president of South Africa or be stripped of power.
The notice was formerly delivered after President Zuma refused his party’s demand to stand down in a 13-hour long meeting of the National Executive Committee.
The newly elected ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa and Secretary-General Ace Magashule visited Zuma at his home in Pretoria late Monday to deliver the ultimatum: quit or be stripped of power.
By defying his party after the 13-hour debate, Zuma looks set for a protracted battle with ANC leadership, who could move to impeach the 75-year-old within days.
