African National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Ace Magashule says no decision has been taken by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to recall President Jacob Zuma.
President Zuma attended the ANC’s Lekgotla in Irene outside Pretoria this weekend.
Briefing the media in Johannesburg, Magashule says Zuma and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa are engaging on the coordination between the party and the government.
“This matter was discussed in the NEC and the matter was left with the officials, because it is a matter of interaction and President Zuma and Ramaphosa are talking about coordination between Luthuli and government; and that is where the matter is.”
Since the election of Cyril Ramaphosa as ANC president, some have raised the issue of two centres of power as the reason for President Zuma to vacate office.
“As the ANC, we don’t do things that way. We engage, we discuss. We haven’t reached a decision that President Zuma must go or President Zuma must stay.”
On suspension of Free State and KwaZulu Natal PECs, Magashule says they will be introducing interim leaders from Tuesday, as part of efforts to rebuild unity.
The four-day meeting will inform discussions of the cabinet Lekgotla and the State of the Nation in February.
