South Africa’s ruling African National Congress, ANC, on Tuesday said its National Executive Committee had debated a call over the weekend for President Jacob Zuma to step down.

ANC Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe said this at a news conference in Johannesburg.

However, Mr. Mantashe noted that the decision-making group had not supported the motion.

“The NEC did not support the call for the President to step down.

“This issue was debated openly, robustly and, as we said, sometimes it was very difficult for members themselves,” Mr. Mantashe said.
