Ace Magashula: NEC discussed Zuma's exit but the matter was not concluded

African National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Ace Magashule has confirmed discussions between President Jacob Zuma and deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa are continuing, to determine Zuma's fate.

On Monday, Magashule dismissed reports that the NEC has collectively decided on the removal of the President.

He insists the matter has not been concluded.

There is discussion between officials and there is also a discussion between President Ramaphosa and President Zuma in terms of coordination of Luthuli house and government and that's where we left the matter. There was no conclusion.
