ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa spoke at a rally held to launch centennial celebrations in honor of the late former President Nelson Mandela and mentioned that there will be a special NEC meeting to take place on Monday.
This follows negotiations with President Jacob Zuma, persuading him to step down.
Ramaphosa hinted that the meeting would be making a decision on the future of President Jacob Zuma.
Author and political analyst, Prince Mashele says the ANC is in turmoil and doesn't know what to do with President Zuma becasue he is refusing to step down.
The summary of the story is that we are dealing with a governing party that is in turmoil, a governing party that has totally lost control of power.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
The fragments of power that it was supposed to have are in the hands of a dodgy president who himself has lost control of society.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
We are living in a vacuum and the ANC doesn't know what to do with a rock of a deployee that is sitting in the Union Building.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
Mashele says he thinks that today at the NEC meeting the ANC is likely to make a decision that Zuma must be removed.
He says the only instrument available is to table a motion of no confidence which the EFF has already done. The ANC will have to negotiate with EFF to remove its own deployee, says Mashele.
Cyril Ramaphosa has failed to negotiate a "deal". I actually dont know what he thought he was negotiating because there is no deal here, Zuma should simply step down.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
Mashele described Jacob Zuma as a criminal and a dangerous man.
He speaks about allegations by Ronnie Kasrils that Zuma made people disappear while in exile as head of Mbokoto and now the ANC wants South Africans to forget what this man has done.
There are allegations that there are many of his comrades that were made to disappear by Zuma simply because he wanted to gain some advantage out of the powerful position he held as head of Mbokoto.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
This is a man who is known as a man with criminal intent and very dangerous..— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
When the ANC took power in 1994 it didn't screen its activists, it allowed all sorts of elements to go into power including Jacob Zuma.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
