Thabo Mbeki Foundation welcomes Zuma recall
The Thabo Mbeki Foundation welcomed the African National Congress' National Executive Committee (NEC) decision to recall of South African President, Jacob Zuma, saying it was long overdue.
The Foundation said in a statement on Tuesday that Zuma should tender his resignation to Speaker of the National Assembly, Baleka Mbete.
It said the decision to recall Zuma gives the ANC, as the governing party, the possibility to urgently and immediately attend to the many challenges and negative developments which have arisen during his tenure.
The Foundation added that Zuma faced the possibility of prosecution for alleged criminal offences. "It has been obvious for many years that the interests of our country would be best served if indeed Zuma ceased to be President of the republic."
