Zuma Wants Dlamini-Zuma As Interim President If He Resigns

Cyril Ramaphosa left and President Zuma toast to the ANC’s 106th anniversary at a rally today. The party is divided over Mr Zuma’s future

ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa reportedly said the ANC was aware of discussions between Zuma and Ramaphosa about "how to we ensure Luthuli House remains a centre of power without undermining the office of the president of the republic", but said he knew nothing of Zuma's reported conditions.

This is one of the key conditions that Zuma has put down during behind-the-scenes negotiations now taking place with newly elected ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa, in exchange for his resignation, according to a Mail & Guardian report.

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni believes the option to appoint Dlamini Zuma as interim president should not be presented along factional lines.

Magashule explained that Zuma will attend the rally in his capacity as an ex officio member of the NEC. City Press reported that Ramaphosa's backers were planning for him to take over the reins in the next few weeks and have him deliver the state of the nation address in February.

Only party President Cyril Ramaphosa‚ his top six leaders and ANC Eastern Cape chairman Oscar Mabuyane were allowed into the palatial home located along the N2 near Mthatha. "It will be the beginning of us mobilising our people for a decisive victory in 2019", Magashule said.
