S. Africa prez Zuma re­signs

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

SOUTH African pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma fi­nally bowed to pres­sure and quit yes­ter­day.

The rul­ing African Na­tional Congress had or­dered him to step down in De­cem­ber af­ter Cyril Ramaphosa’s elec­tion.

The 75-year-old re­fused to budge. How­ever, his scan­dal-plagued nine years in power has now fi­nally come to an end.

But in one last swipe at the ANC he said: “I dis­agree with the de­ci­sion of the lead­er­ship.”
