JOHANNESBURG – The ANC will brief the media on Wednesday, on the outcomes of its extended National Working Committee (NWC) meeting.
The meeting was meant to take place on Monday, but had to be pushed forward due to schedule clashes.
There have been calls within the party for President Jacob Zuma to step down as head of state.
On Monday, Standard and Poor’s downgraded South Africa’s investment grade status to junk.
This sparked further calls for Zuma to be removed.
But, ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says the party will remain united despite the movement against its president.
At the same time, Kodwa has also confirmed that ANC Chair Baleka Mbete left the meeting due to her responsibilities in Parliament.
