Pretoria

South African President Jacob Zuma has refused to resign, saying he will only step down if the ruling African National Congress (ANC) top brass explains to him what he has done wrong.

In an exclusive interview with SABC TV on Wednesday at his official residence in Pretoria‚ Mahlamba Ndlopfu‚ President Zuma said the national executive committee’s decision to recall him was irrational as he had done no wrong.

“I indicated to the top six that what they have raised is not the first time. They have raised it in the NEC itself twice and nobody has ever been able to tell me what the issue is. The NEC themselves said that I must resign‚ and I find that very strange that I should do so because this is not the first time that they've said this‚” President Zuma said.

PROCESS

He said there were processes in the ANC that need to be followed if a deployee has done wrong.
