Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni says President Jacob Zuma may already be replaced.
National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete on Tuesday announced the postponement of the State of the Nation Address (Sona).
There is political uncertainty as to what this means for the President with the African National Congress (ANC) urging South Africans not to panic over Zuma's future.
A special ANC National Executive Committee(NEC) meeting scheduled for Wednesday has also been postponed.
Mnguni says while the top six may have forced the hand of the President, he should have come out and taken the country into his confidence.
It might have been a coerced move. It is possible that they are forcing the hand of the president Zuma to actually give that concession for the postponement of Sona and once they are done with that presser he was left with no choice but to react with an affirmative statement from the Presidency.— Lukhona Mnguni, political analyst
Ideally at such a time of restlessness, anxiety and uncertainty in the country, the President is the one who should have come out and taken the nation to his confidence. Clearly there is no confidence both from the public and internally from his comrades.— Lukhona Mnguni, political analyst
In actual fact, the President has been replaced. It seems as if we don't have a President anymore.— Lukhona Mnguni, political analyst
