'Zuma will go if Dlamini-Zuma is made interim president'

Notably the condition that Dlamini-Zuma serve as interim president has been rejected by Ramaphosa, who has instead nominated Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu or National Assembly speaker Baleka Mbete for the role.
Zuma and his allies reportedly also want assurances that some Cabinet members will stay on in their portfolios, including Energy Minister David Mahlobo and State Security Minister Bongani Bongo. "There is no substance that the former AU Chairperson will be the president", Magashule added.
The issue was however not discussed at the first NEC meeting held on Wednesday and may only feature at the next NEC meeting next week.
The rumour comes as there are growing calls for Zuma to be recalled as state president.
Piotr Matys, emerging market strategist at Rabobank, warned that ousting Zuma could also cause trouble for the South African currency, saying that: "The governing ANC could be engulfed in political bickering between Zuma's camp and members of the party who voted for Ramaphosa".
Magashule said Zuma‚ as ex-officio member of the NEC‚ would attend the celebrations in East London on Saturday.
Zuma this week met Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Some NEC members had earlier told News24 that they want Ramaphosa, who now serves as Zuma's deputy in government, to take over from him. City Press reported that Ramaphosa's backers were planning for him to take over the reins in the next few weeks and have him deliver the state of the nation address in February.
Deputy secretary-general Jesse Duarte said the ANC hopes the event will be a success but will not say how many people are expected. "In keeping with this tradition we were instructed by Mamu Nosizwe [Graca Machel] to receive and host the delegation led by newly elected ANC president comrade Cyril Ramaphosa".
