South Africa: Nelson Mandela Foundation Remembers Madiba's Release

South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) will convene a special meeting of its executive body on Monday, its spokesman said, amid mounting pressure on President Jacob Zuma to step down.

The two have quarrelled in recent months, with Ramaphosa publicly criticising Zuma's decision past year to fire his respected finance minister, Pravin Gordhan, and his failure to tackle corruption.

Addressing an ANC rally in the eastern province of Mpumalanga, Gwede Mantashe said ANC officials should be fearless and must be able to make hard decisions, but leaders had a duty to "analyze and mitigate risks".

Ramaphosa told the ANC supporters that discussions with Zuma over his possible resignation were taking place using Madiba's "style".

"There is agreement on the end game, what is being discussed is the timing and the process that should be followed", Mantashe told the public broadcaster on the sidelines of the party's 106 birthday celebration in Mpumalanga. Our SOEs will manage the assets of our people.

"Allow (Ramaphosa) to lead, Leadership is a science, a profession and also an art".

"We are determined to rebuild the confidence of our people in the public institutions of our country and to restore the credibility of those who are elected to serve in those institutions", said Ramaphosa, a key negotiator during the transition from apartheid to democracy in the early 1990s who later became a wealthy businessman.

The report stated that Zuma and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa are secretly negotiating the deal.

On Saturday, the part saying "it's going to be ugly" had been edited out of her post.

The deal would require Zuma to disclose any and all criminal acts, and would also require him to name others who were involved or complicit in the acts. "It is therefore important that we manage the discussions that are now underway with care and objective, ensuring that we place the interests of South Africa first".

"I say this because we know you want this matter to be finalised. we we know you want closure on this matter", he said of week-long negotiations aimed at seeing him succeed the scandal-ridden Zuma. "We as family we will respect whatever decision is taken by the leaders that are in power at the moment", he said.
