South Africa’s Zuma Gets Backing From ANC

South Africa's Zuma Gets Backing From ANCEmbattled South Africa’s President, Jacob Zuma, has survived another attempt to force him out of office for the umpteenth time.

This time, the President received the backing of a major decision-making body within the ruling African National Congress (ANC).

The committee was reviewing a complaint by some of the ANC top executives that President Zuma had failed to consult them over reshuffling his cabinet.

After considering the complaint, the ANC body said it has decided not to press for the President’s resignation.

Mr Zuma has been under growing pressure since sacking respected South Africa’s Minister of Finance, Pravin Gordhan.

Mr Gordhan was sacked alongside 14 other members of the cabinet, following an urgent meeting of the ANC .

The former Finance Minister described an intelligence report used by President Zuma as justification as ‘absolute nonsense‘.
