Presidency refutes media briefing claims

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

The Presidency says its office has not issued an official communication on a media briefing today by President Jacob Zuma.

“No official communication has been issued by the Presidency on a media briefing today by President Jacob Zuma as reported by media houses,” said the Presidency in a statement issued on Wednesday.

The Presidency urged the media to await official notification. 

The governing African National Congress (ANC) on Tuesday announced that its National Executive Committee (NEC) took a decision to recall President Zuma from Office. The party’s Secretary General Ace Magashule said the decision to recall 75-year-old President Zuma was taken in order to “provide certainty” to the people of South Africa. - SAnews.gov.za
