South Africa's Ramaphosa clears diary, pushing for Zuma…

South African President Jacob Zuma's fate is set to be sealed when the top leadership of the ruling African National Congress meets to conclude the transition to a new administration.
Since Ramaphosa won the ANC leadership race in December, he has come under increasing pressure to "recall" his predecessor as ANC president Jacob Zuma as head of State.
He added: "We know you want this matter to be finalised. This is precisely what our leadership is doing now with the key objective of uniting our people".
Ziyanda Peter, a 33-year-old unemployed mother of four from Langa township in Cape Town, is looking to Ramaphosa to rebuild the ANC and revive the hope that South Africans had for a better future when Mandela led the country. Politically, however, that case never went away: The opposition vowed not to let the matter drop, and has since used it to illustrate its lack of faith in the president through eight no-confidence votes in relation to his alleged corrupt acts before and during his presidency.
The legal complexities and costs, as well as the fact that South African law does not accommodate political deals for criminal prosecutions, lies behind the delays in the talks and a deferment of Zuma's resignation.
Ramaphosa is due to give a speech on Sunday as part of year-long celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of former President Nelson Mandela. "Allow Cyril Ramaphosa to execute and use his art and his personality to manage this", Mantashe said. A senior ANC source told Reuters, however, that the committee was likely to discuss Zuma's situation at the meeting.
Zuma, 75, has not said whether he will resign voluntarily before his second term as president ends in the middle of next year.

"We should handle these discussions that are now under way with care and objective, ensuring that we put the interests of South Africans first", he said. The two have quarrelled in recent months, with Ramaphosa publicly criticising Zuma's decision a year ago to fire his respected finance minister, Pravin Gordhan, and his failure to tackle corruption.
"The centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela gives us an opportunity for renewal and rebuilding", Ramaphosa said, noting that the party and the county was emerging from a hard period.
However, Save South Africa, an anti-corruption group, said Ramaphosa was "being sucked into the illicit world that Zuma and his cronies thrive in" by negotiating with the president.
