Nehawu calls on Zuma to resign, want Ramaphosa at the helm

National Health Education and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) says President Jacob Zuma's resignation will be a "starting point in turning the tide against factionalism".

Nehawu General Secretary Bereng Soke, says Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa should take over to allow the process of unity within the African National Congress (ANC) and its alliance partners.

According to EWN reporter Clement Manyathela who was at the press briefing, Nehawu says it wants Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) to take a position that they have lost confidence in the President.

Nehawu was the first Cosatu affiliate to call on Zuma to resign before 2019 national and provincial elections.

Cosatu then followed and announced its support for Ramaphosa to succeed Zuma.
