Fight against Zuma within ANC far from over - analyst

The Star reports that some of the senior African National Congress (ANC) leaders are pushing for the party to hold the special national executive committee (NEC) meeting.

On Wednesday ANC secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, said the the ANC's National Working Committee (NWC) has welcomed and acknowledged President Jacob Zuma's reason for firing Pravin Gordhan as Minister of Finance.

Mantashe had slammed Zuma for axing Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas. He also said the ruling party was not consulted about the other 18 changes in the executive made by the President last week.

Reading the statement of the NWC, he said it was wrong for party members to publicly raise their disagreements, but emphasised that the President should contact the ANC before reshuffling the Cabinet.

Political analyst, Karima Brown, says the NWC cannot make decisions for the party, and the NEC may result in a different outcome.

The Sowetan reported that President Jacob Zuma apologized to the ANC's NWC for the way in which the Cabinet reshuffle was handled
