ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule told reporters at a break in the meeting that the only item on the agenda was the statement to be read by Ramaphosa on January 8 to mark the 106th birthday of the ANC.

President Jacob Zuma and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa have had intimate meetings, as speculation over Zuma's future as head of state remains uncertain.

Recent events had indicated that the market had not entirely priced in Zuma's exit‚ which was expected after reports last week that he would be recalled if he did not voluntarily resign before today's meeting.

President Kenyatta is scheduled to make his first foreign trip his his reelection for second term on October 26th.

The ANC's public support has declined under Zuma's leadership as voters have become increasingly disillusioned with a raft of corruption scandals, weak economic growth and an unemployment rate that has risen to almost 28 percent.




It also brought tens of thousands of anti-Zuma protesters onto the streets in nationwide marches.

It is quite clear that Ramaphosa is not equal to the task of getting rid Zuma as the majority of the ANC is still made up of corrupt and selfish leaders who put filling their own pockets before the needs of the people.

"The ANC can not avoid dealing with the future of Jacob Zuma". You can't say when you have a president of the ANC and president of the country ... these two must exist in parallel.

The new ANC national executive committee met for the first time on Wednesday in East London, where the party's annual 8 January celebrations will be held.
