- - 29 November A group of ministers threatened to resign on Sunday if President Jacob Zuma remained as the country's president.The ministers made the dramatic threat on the sidelines of a tense extended national executive (NEC) committee meeting.At the same time Mantashe on Tuesday assured members that there would be no reprisals for those who called for Zuma to be removed.The ANC was not expecting any mass resignations of Cabinet members following the dramatic meeting, in which Zuma claimed there was a plot against him by foreign governments ; that he was poisoned three times as well as that he had to defend his relationship with the Gupta family.- - 28 March Two ANC councillors and two party activists are among several party members who have been charged by the party following their protest against the election of the new ANC leadership in Kwa Zulu-Natal.The quartet organised and led several protest marches to the ANC provincial headquarters in November last year and lodged complaints with Luthuli House the national headquarters of the ANC.The ANC NEC was divided on Zuma's future, with both his detractors and supporters pushing to win the day, after his recall as state president was raised at the meeting on Saturday.In an unprecedented debate, which most analysts see as the waning of Zuma's political clout, some members called for him to step down and those close to him came to his defence.
Addressing the media on Monday following the party's Lekgotla, provincial secretary Super Zuma said the party needed to review the entire selection process.
While ANC provincial leaders have questioned the timing over the application brought last Friday that seeks to have any resolutions from the conference set aside as unlawful and invalid, they have refused to comment on the application until after the local government elections next Wednesday.
The letter, a copy of which is in ANA's possession, was sent to Mantashe on April 28 by a Durban-based attorney who has since distanced himself from the action because of concerns over his safety.
The foundations expressed their concerns in a letter handed to party secretary general Gwede Mantashe at the ANC's national executive committee meeting in Pretoria on Saturday.
Its signatories are Frene Ginwala, chairperson of the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation ; Professor Njabulo Ndebele, chairperson of the board of trustees of the Nelson Mandela Foundation ; and Tourism Minister and NEC member Derek Hanekom, on behalf of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.
