According to Zuma, South Africa is being plunged into a crisis and that his ANC comrades might regret their decision.
Political analyst Richard Calland says there was a sinister and threatening tone to Zuma's interview.
Calland says that Zuma was declaring war against his own party and warning them to think twice.
Zuma said that he is not being defiant, but that he disagrees with the decision to have him recalled.
The President told the SABC that the top six did not communicate with him what he had done to deserve a recall.
