SOUTH AFRICA'S PRESIDENT ZUMA'S PARTY ANC ASK HIM TO STEP DOWN

SOUTH AFRICA'S PRESIDENT ZUMA'S PARTY ANC ASK HIM TO STEP DOWN. African National Congeres's (ANC) Secretary General Ace Magashule addresses the media with feedback from the ANC NEC meeting held overnight, in Johannesburg, South Africa, Feb. 13, 2018. South Africa's governing party, the African National Congress, on Tuesday formally submitted a request for Jacob Zuma to be recalled from his duties as president, thus rejecting the scandal-embroiled incumbent's offer to delay his dismissal by a period of three to six months. Zuma, 75, has rejected calls to stand down since he lost his position as party leader to Cyril Ramaphosa in Dec., but his almost 10-year stint in office has been stained by a slew of high-level corruption allegations that have left him isolated from the ANC's national executive committee, which has been negotiating the president's removal for weeks.
