ANC Denies Reports About President Zuma's Demands For Stepping Down

ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa and the rest of the party's new leadership collective arrived for their first January 8 statement event without much fanfare.

"President Kenyatta's presence here goes a long away in proving that we have a very special relationship with Kenya", he said.

ANC NEC members who spoke to the newspaper on condition of anonymity says the talks have now ground to a halt. We want a new culture to spread.

Ramaphosa faces a hard balancing act as he must accommodate the competing interests of rival ANC factions vying for control of the party.

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's second presidential term doesn't officially end until 2019 when national elections will be held, but he could be removed early through a motion of no confidence in parliament or at a meeting of the ANC's national executive committee.

This includes expropriating land without compensation, free education, nationalisation of the reserve bank and the party's fight against corruption.

Public frustration over corruption allegations against Zuma deeply split the ANC, and Ramaphosa has been pressured by opposition parties and some ANC members to recall Zuma as president.

The party is also expected to set out its campaign for the national elections next year.

Speaking at the ANC's 106th anniversary celebrations at the Buffalo City Stadium in East London on Saturday, he said corruption in state-owned enterprises (SoEs) had undermined government's programmes to address poverty and unemployment.

The interfaith prayers were dominated by the request for unity and an end of corruption.
