South Africa political crisis: Zuma defies pressure to resign

Latest update : 2018-02-14

By François PICARD

A gentle nudge wasn't enough. So now comes the big push to oust South Africa's president of nine years. The new leadership of the ruling ANC party making it clear it will go through with a vote of no-confidence if that's what it takes to trigger Zexit, the departure of Jacob Zuma - who, unlike Robert Mugabe in neighbouring Zimbabwe, won't be rewarded with a national holiday in his name. What does it all say about today's South Africa, 20 years after the retirement of Nelson Mandela?
