Finweek English Edition - - THE WEEK -

Pres­sure on Pres­i­dent Zuma is mount­ing af­ter a num­ber of min­is­ters, in­clud­ing Derek Hanekom (tourism) and Aaron Mot­soaledi (health) asked for him to step down at an ANC Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee meet­ing, held over the last week­end of Novem­ber. Zuma, who brought un­told dam­age to the economy and in­vestor sen­ti­ment af­ter he fired fi­nance min­is­ter Nh­lanhla Nene in De­cem­ber, has lurched from scan­dal to scan­dal in 2016. He sur­vived this at­tempt to re­move him, but mo­men­tum is build­ing to re­place him be­fore the ANC’s elec­tive con­fer­ence in De­cem­ber 2017.
