While it is being reported that Zuma has agreed to step down, HuffPost SA editor Pieter du Toit says South Africans should wait for official word from the Presidency.

There's many conflicting stories.

I think that, until we get a press release from the Presidency saying that the President will be addressing the nation tonight, we should keep our powder dry.

There's been too many false starts and rumors flying around.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa really put his reputation on the line by saying that the NEC will bring the matter to finalisation today.

We will have to get some form of an answer tonight.

Pieter du Toit, Editor-in-chief of HuffPost SA

Ramaphosa and the NEC will have to make a very difficult decision tonight, and how they communicate their decision will be very important.
