Magashule: ANC NEC hasn't discussed replacing Zuma

This is one of the key conditions that Zuma has put down during behind-the-scenes negotiations now taking place with newly elected ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa, in exchange for his resignation, according to a Mail & Guardian report.

Magashule was responding to a Friday report by the Mail & Guardian newspaper that Zuma has provided key members of the ANC with a list of requirements if he were to step down as president of South Africa.

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.

Supporters of President Jacob Zuma are demanding that his pro-nuclear deal Cabinet minister retains his job and for his ex-wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to be appointed as interim president until the next general election‚ before agreeing to any proposed exit deal for the man from Nkandla.

Magashule says the NEC has not discussed replacing Zuma.

The latest developments came as pressure was mounting on Zuma to resign.

During the match, Sasha Banks kicked Paige in the back and Paige struggled to get up until the referee called for the "X" symbol. She was featured on reality series Total Divas , so that's a possible vehicle for her, as are WWE Studios feature films.

It has been reported that Ramaphosa has rejected this.

The NEC had met on Wednesday at a special NEC meeting in East London‚ where the celebrations will take place‚ and deliberated only on the January 8 statement‚ even though it was widely speculated that the NEC would discuss recalling President Jacob Zuma.

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni believes the option to appoint Dlamini Zuma as interim president should not be presented along factional lines.

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule told the Mail & Guardian that he could not confirm the rumours about Zuma's conditions, but said Dlamini-Zuma would play a role in future ANC plans because she was "part of the collective".

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta would also attend.
