It’s been more than 24 hours since the ANC NEC officially recalled Jacob Zuma. He had two options: resign or face a motion of no confidence in Parliament.
While the ANC Caucus acted decisively on Wednesday, confirmed that it will be pushing ahead with a motion – and Baleka Mbete confirmed that it would be moved forward to Thursday – Zuma gave an ‘interview’ to the SABC afterwards.
It was long – almost an hour. To be quite frank, it was no interview, and we say that because it basically involved the President speaking without the reporter asking Zuma any questions.
In basic conclusion, Zuma said he will ‘be making a statement’ and also warned of a ‘crisis’ which comrades ‘will regret’.
