ANC to hold special meeting as pressure mounts on Zuma

South Africa: Nelson Mandela Foundation Remembers Madiba's Release

"There is agreement on the end game, what is being discussed is the timing and the process that should be followed", Mantashe told the public broadcaster on the sidelines of the party's 106 birthday celebration in Mpumalanga.

"The centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela gives us an opportunity for renewal and rebuilding", Ramaphosa said, noting that the party and the county was emerging from a hard period.

President Jacob Zuma is being offered the chance to escape prosecution on charges of state capture if he admits criminal wrongdoing and turns against the Guptas.

"But if he is going to be leading on the basis of the cacophony of noises around us, he will commit mistakes - it is [for the] protection of the president of the ANC to tell analysts to back off". Don't fight someone who is not fighting you.

The ANC on Sunday asked Zuma to step down after more than eight scandal-plagued years in office. The two were widely expected to hold another meeting this weekend, which will signal a final decision on Zuma's future.

Ramaphosa had earlier withdrawn from the programme and was expected to continue his meeting with Zuma. Many reporters were camped outside Zuma's official residence in Pretoria.

The young Zuma said the family had no direct knowledge of how the talks between Zuma and Ramaphosa were going.

"We should handle these discussions that are now under way with care and goal, ensuring that we put the interests of South Africans first", he said.

"This is a challenging time for our country", Ramaphosa said Wednesday.

"As the leadership of the African National Congress, we are now engaged in discussions around the transition to a new administration and specifically to resolve the issues of the position of the President of the Republic. They want us to rush through issues, but we must be allowed to manage a very complex situation carefully", Mantashe said.

I think if they'd had a more inclusive process, a process where there was more flexibility, things could have been different. In Victoria, Horgan said while he and Notley may both be New Democrats, that is a secondary consideration.

The African National Congress's top six officials had been called into an urgent meeting with Zuma, Johannesburg-based broadcaster eNCA reported.

Ramaphosa also used the occasion to call on South Africans to reflect on the things that had gone wrong in the past and to make sure they do not happen again. "Don't follow emotion", he said.

Speaker Baleka Mbete last week scheduled a debate on a motion of no confidence in Zuma tabled by the Economic Freedom Fighters, the country's second largest opposition party, for February 22.

On Tuesday, Parliament's presiding officers announced that Thursday's State of the Nation Address had been indefinitely postponed amid fears that it might descend into chaos.

The ruling ANC party's national executive committee will discuss Zuma's fate at a meeting Monday "and because our people want this matter to be finalized, the national executive committee will be doing precisely that", Ramaphosa said.
