    Default * BREAKING* Zuma 'agrees to go'

    President Jacob Zuma will resign as soon as a list of preconditions has been finalised, in a deal struck on Tuesday between Zuma and ANC leader Cyril Ramaphosa and confirmed by sources on Tuesday night.

    The deal led to the postponement of an ANC national executive committee (NEC) meeting scheduled for the following day to force Zuma’s removal from office.

    That meeting had been due to take place at the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town and would have heard a recommendation from the ANC’s national working committee that Zuma be removed as head of state.

    Magashule would not confirm whether Zuma had agreed to resign
    More clickbait - the article makes no mention that Zupta resigned or agreed to go.

    The ANC has confirmed that the planned national executive committee (NEC) meeting has been cancelled after a "constructive discussion" between President Jacob Zuma and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa in Cape Town on Tuesday.
    the purpose of the meeting was to discuss zuma's fate

    why do you think the meeting has been cancelled ?

    It says meeting postponed not cancelled. I hope they don't agree to those "pre-conditions", I think it safe to assume that he wants a stay from prosecution and also protection for his corrupt son.

    Yes Cyril. Show him the meaning of concomitant action.

    ANC will have bigger issues if they offer anything they can’t offer any guy off the street.

    Ie protection from prosecution = face off with constitutional judges and the public which could lead to the party being broken up, early elections where they would lose. They’d be stupid to offer this.
    When have you demonstrated leadership skills?

    If true, I hope those conditions don't include leaving his Gupta appointees to stay on

    as president, would ramaphosa have the legal power to pardon zuma`s crimes?
    Isn`t it up to the judiciary, and not the executive?

    AFAIK the President has the power to pardon anyone but any pardon can be challenged in, and overturned by, the Constitutional Court
