Nehawu ready for ANCYL attacks after calling for Zuma to resign

National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu), with its membership base of over 250 000, has called on President Jacob Zuma to resign from the Presidency before 2019 national and provincial elections.

He says he knows the union will receive criticism from the ANC and they are ready for attacks from groups like ANCYL for calling on Zuma to resign.

Nehawu General Secretary, Bereng Soke, says 'Zuma has delivered on expectations of workers, but of late his decisions have been compromised'.

The union says it is concerned about state capture allegations which implicate the President.

Soke says they have also made a decision to back Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to succeed Zuma.

He says it is the culture of the ANC to have the deputy president to take over as the next president.

We think that on this one we are not taking sides, but all that we are saying that we need to respect the culture of succession in the ANC.
