[LISTEN] Zuma will be gone in the next 7 days - Snuki Zikalala

The African National Congress (ANC) Veterans' League president Snuki Zikalala has welcomed the postponement of the State of the Nation Address (Sona) saying President Jacob Zuma's days are numbered.

National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete on Tuesday announced the postponement of the Sona, saying it was in the best interest of the country.

There is uncertainty over Zuma's fate and how recent events - as well as the cancellation of an ANC NEC meeting- will influence his exit.

Zikalala says the President is left with no option but to step down.

Our sense is that he will definitely go. He has got no options. He has seen that the wheels have changed.

On Sunday he was saying that even if it is a question of him being impeached, it is fine. It was sad for us to hear that but we are happy that it is now being handled properly and he has come to his senses.

Within the next seven days he will definitely go, or else comrade Cyril Ramaphosa would not have cancelled the NEC tonight.

Meanwhile political analyst Lesiba Tefo says there may be consequences if Zuma is pushed out and that he would need to be persuaded to step down.

Forcing him out rather than persuading him to step down, the consequences for me might be too costly to contemplate.
