The special ANC national executive committee (NEC) meeting was most likely postponed in order to give President Jacob Zuma more time to discuss the terms of his exit.
This is according to former ANC MP and anti-corruption activist Andrew Feinstein, who says Zuma is trying by all means to stay out of prison.
Feinstein suspects that Zuma is is buying time to negotiate the nature of his departure and ask for immunity for him and his family.
The whistleblower and former politician shares his opinion and predictions on the matter.
My sense is that it's the modalities and nature of his departure that's being debated and that has caused the delay.— Andrew Feinstein, former ANC MP
My instinct, knowing Jacob Zuma and the ANC, is that they tend to deal with those involved in malfeasance in gentle ways.— Andrew Feinstein, former ANC MP
My sense would be that Zuma is trying to get some guarantee of immunity, pardon, or something for himself and members of his family.— Andrew Feinstein, former ANC MP
Suddenly, when the day of reckoning comes, it's all about protection and ensuring that can... stay out of prison.— Andrew Feinstein, former ANC MP
