Pressure from within the ANC for President Jacob Zuma to step down as the party’s leader is continuing to mount.

Phumulo Masualle, the Eastern Cape premier, confirmed that ANC branches had called for Zuma to step down. This after organisers of #OccupyLuthuliHouse anticipating hundreds of people to converge on the ANC’s headquarters on Monday, in support of the call for him to do so.
The campaign is intended to be a public display of dissatisfaction and willingness to make changes to retain by power by the ANC – a wake-up call fromthe party’s poor performance in the recent municipal elections.

The call follows several ANC meetings – held last weekend in Port Elizabeth and East London – which were attended by party heavyweights, including secretary-general Gwede Mantashe, Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services Siyabonga Cwele and Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba.

The purpose of these meetings, said the governing party, was to “reflect” on its performance following last month’s elections.
