South Africa's Ramaphosa: ANC Working to Resolve Fate of Zuma

South Africa's Ramaphosa: ANC Working to Resolve Fate of Zuma

Zuma, whose presidency has been marked by numerous scandals, has stubbornly refused to budge.

Pressed for answers about Zuma's future‚ Ramaphosa laughed.

Ramaphosa is due to give a speech tomorrow as part of year-long celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of Mandela. He also promised to tackle corruption.

"This year we are called upon, all of us, to look at where we have come from and to look at our weaknesses, to look at the challenges we face", Ramaphosa said.

Ramaphosa told crowds he wants to usher in a "new beginning" for the ruling ANC party. It is Madiba's example that should inform our approach to the tasks that we must undertake.

"For him a necessary condition for the unity of South African people was the unity of the African National Congress". Jailed for 27 years, the anti-apartheid leader addressed an ecstatic crowd from the balcony of Cape Town's City Hall on February 11, 1990 and was elected as South Africa's first black president four years later.

Ramaphosa, who is expected to succeed, says discussions that he has held with had to be conducted with "care and purpose" and with the aim of uniting South Africans. Critics have expressed concern that Zuma may be requesting immunity from prosecution in exchange for his resignation. We know you want closure on this matter. "That we will make sure of".

Ramaphosa said they would draw on Nelson Mandela's wisdom.

Ramaphosa also used the occasion to praise the Congress of South African Unions (Cosatu) for the role it played in ensuring that the minimum wage is finalised and implemented this year from May 1.

First Lady Madiba-Zuma, however, who clearly supports her husband's stance to remain in power until next year will have none of these antics to remove her from the stately home as well and cautioned against "picking a fight with someone who is not fighting you". He was freed from Robben Island prisons in 1990 before being elected the country's first black president in 1994.

"Like Madiba, they were made to suffer for their convictions and, like him, their sacrifices, their courage and their indomitable spirit continue to inspire us"'.

"We leave this church well armed with the good blessings and prayer.so as the leadership of the ANC we have been well empowered as we move ahead. and as we manage this transition", Ramaphosa told reporters.

After ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa postponed an ANC NEC meeting last week that would have decided President Jacob Zuma's fate, he promised that Monday's NEC meeting would resolve the matter of what the ANC terms the "transition".
