South Africa in deadlock trying to oust President Zuma

International Editor

South Africa is expected to finally learn if their president Jacob Zuma will resign or be forced from office tomorrow. The future of the embattled president has been in doubt for some time. But at an event in Cape Town marking 28 years since Nelson Mandela was released from prison, the ANC’s president and Zuma’s deputy Cyril Ramaphosa told crowds that matters would be finalised at a national executive committee meeting tomorrow. Ramaphosa, who is expected to take the top job from Zuma, spoke from the same spot where 28 years ago he held the microphone for Nelson Mandela.
