'There is growing acceptance that Zuma will have to leave office'

Today marks the 106th birthday of the African National Congress (ANC), but it has gone through some turbulent times.

Ranjeni Munusamy, associate editor at Tiso Black Star says that is it difficult to know the state of the ANC so soon after the Elective conference at Nasrec.

I think after the conference at Nasrec, there were many bruised bodies around, and I think people have had a chance to recover. But they haven't had time to hold any discussions yet. And until they do it is difficult to say how this leadership is going to collaborate, how they going to make decisions and how they are going to take action.

Ranjeni Munusamy, associate editor at Tiso Black Star

Munusamy says that those discussions and actions will the test of the organisation. She adds that the survival of the ANC is dependant on what they do between now at the 2019 election.

As for President Jacob Zuma, Munusamy says that from her understanding there are no firm decisions yet on whether they will remove or recall the president. But this is something that they will have to consider.

There is a growing appreciation that the longer President Zuma remains in the Union Buildings, the less public trust there will be in the ANC.

Munusamy says that from what she hears, there is a growing acceptance within the ANC that Zuma will have to leave office, before his term is done.
