The decision at the ANC NEC meeting to not recall president Jacob Zuma does not signify the end of political tensions within South Africa's governing party.
The ANC held the meeting in response to allegations of the Gupta family wielding undue power to influence decisions within the party.
702's John Robbie spoke to EWN reporter, Stephen Grootes, regarding his take on the issue.
Listen to the conversation below:
I don't think there was ever going to be a recall. The structure around Zuma is very different from former president Thabo Mbeki. Zuma is still the leader of the ANC, Mbeki wasn't.— Stephen Grootes, EWN reporter
If you have two factions up against each other, one can only act against Zuma once that is settled.— Stephen Grootes, EWN reporter
There's still going to be an investigation, the game is not over. It's going to go through Gwede Mantashe's office. I'm not entirely sure what we can read into that.— Stephen Grootes, EWN reporter
I think it will be very hard for Zuma to take action against any of the people mentioned here...it makes it hard for Zuma to do another Cabinet re-shuffle.— Stephen Grootes, EWN reporter
