Reports say A-N-C’s executive committee is discussing an internal vote of no confidence, backed by three of Zuma’s own cabinet ministers. The committee has not commented on the reports, but it has extended a pre-scheduled meeting for a third day without any explanation. Zuma has been under pressure to step down for months, including by trade unions and corporate bosses, not to mention during nationwide protests. South Africa’s anti-graft watchdog has also ordered an inquiry into the embattled president’s possible link with the wealthy Gupta Indian family accused of wielding undue political influence. Zuma has denied any wrongdoing.
