Mantashe on the motion to ask Zuma to step down:

On the call for the President to consider stepping down as President of the Republic, the NEC took time to elaborate on what we have previously identified as a negative narrative directed towards the President.  

The essence of engagement and discussion is persuasion in order to arrive at consensus. As such, the NEC of the ANC always seeks to persuade one another through argument.

It does not seek to conclude matters through voting.

Following robust, honest, candid and at times difficult discussions, the NEC did not support the call for the President to step down.

The NEC resolved it was more urgent to direct the energies of the ANC in its entirety to working towards the unity of the movement.

The rand weakened after confirmation that President Jacob Zuma had survived a three-day attack on his leadership from within the ANC's National Executive Committee (NEC).

The rand opened at R13.73 to the US dollar on Tuesday and was approaching the R14 mark by midday, trading at R13.95.
