SOUTH AFRICA: ANC LEADERS EXPECTED TO ASK PRESIDENT ZUMA TO RESIGN

Leaders of South Africa’s governing ANC party are meeting to decide the future of President Jacob Zuma. The National Executive Committee (NEC) is likely to ask him to step down, says BBC Africa correspondent Andrew Harding.

ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa acknowledged on Sunday that the issue was causing “disunity and discord”. Mr Zuma, 75, faces a number of corruption charges after nine years in power.

There are 112 members of the NEC, and many may want to share their views during the meeting in Pretoria – meaning it they may not finish until late on Monday.
