TOP ANC OF­FI­CIAL WANTS ZUMA TO RE­SIGN

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

JO­HAN­NES­BURG: A se­nior of­fi­cial of South Africa’s rul­ing party on Sun­day urged its lead­er­ship, in­clud­ing Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma, to re­sign fol­low­ing di­vi­sions over charges faced by fi­nance min­is­ter Pravin Gord­han. Jack­son Mthembu, who is the African Na­tional Congress (ANC) chief whip in par­lia­ment, said the party’s poor per­for­mance in Au­gust polls, fac­tion­al­ism and Gord­han’s fraud charges mo­ti­vated his de­ci­sion. “When I said the en­tire ANC lead­er­ship ... I meant ev­ery­body, my­self in­cluded, (and) Zuma,” he said. – AFP
