Decision-makers in South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) are set to hold a crucial meeting on Monday to decide the fate of tainted President Jacob Zuma after the leader rejected the party’s call to step down.

Zuma, who was stripped of party leadership in December, is poised to deliver his State of the Nation address later this week, writes the BBC.

ANC, which battles internal fissures between the supporters of Zuma and that of leader Cyril Ramaphosa, may order the serving president to resign in Monday’s meeting, notes The Guardian.
