Zuma woes: Unapologetic wife hits back
11 February, 2018, 10:20
Zuma, in power since 2009 and battling corruption allegations, has been living on borrowed time since Ramaphosa replaced him as leader of the ruling party in December.
As pressure grows inside and outside the ANC for Zuma to resign, the president and his deputy have been meeting to discuss a transition of power that Ramaphosa has indicated should not humiliate Zuma or further divide the country of 55 million people.
"Don't dictate what he should do and put labels to force him to do what you think must be done now", Mantashe said, slamming analysts who this week asked "where are Ramaphosa's balls" amidst the country's anxiety over Zuma's future. That much is clear.
Mr Zuma has faced near-constant scandals during his nine years as president and is the ANC's biggest liability ahead of elections in 2019.
"South Africans must appreciate that the leadership of the ANC is hard at work". A court ruled past year that the decision to drop the case - on the eve of Mr Zuma's election as South African president in 2009 - was "irrational" and the charges should be reinstated.
The president, who says he has done nothing wrong, also could face the reinstatement of corruption charges tied to an arms deal two decades ago.
"We are confident when they finish there they'll give South Africa a positive way forward". "Zuma is looking for some kind of immunity, which is not possible under South African law". Under his leadership South Africa has seen anaemic economic growth, as well as rising unemployment and poverty levels. "We as family we will respect whatever decision is taken by the leaders that are in power at the moment", he said.
But Mr Zuma has flouted party tradition by refusing to go. Other options for his removal include impeachment proceedings in parliament or a vote on an opposition-sponsored motion of no confidence that is scheduled for February 22.
But Zuma's wife Tobeka Madiba-Zuma caused a stir on social media on Friday after she posted a picture on her Instagram account, @firstladytzuma, showing her and the president inside what appears to be a plane, with part of the caption reading "It's going to be ugly".
Robert Besseling, executive director of EXX Africa, a political risk advisory firm, said that control over the national prosecuting authority and state-owned enterprises will be "crucially important" in the negotiations over Mr Zuma's ouster.
It is now the task of ANC party president Cyril Ramaphosa to manoeuvre Mr Zuma out of the door and prepare this fabled organisation for a national election next year. On Twitter, the #ZumaIsGoneParty hashtag imagines dancing and partying in the streets.
