Cape Town - The ANC national executive committee announced on Tuesday that they have agreed to recall President Jacob Zuma, following a lengthy meeting on Monday.
While the announcement at a press conference provided South Africa with some much-needed clarity on the matter, the timeline around Zuma's resignation deadline was left up in the air.
Secretary general Ace Magashule said Zuma had not been given a timeline to step down, but added that he was "sure Zuma will respond tomorrow (Wednesday)".
Here is what Twitter had to say about the recall:

Guys, I need clarification here ??...— Karabo Mokgoko ?? (@Karabo_Mokgoko) February 13, 2018
Magashule said “I’m sure President Zuma will respond tomorrow”
Question: Is it the English or the South African “I’m sure”?
English: I’m sure = I’m certain.
South African: I’m sure = Maybe#ZumaRecall #ZumaExit #ANCNECPresser

The only way this would make any sense is if the sign language interpreter at Mandela’s funeral were interpreting it. #ZumaRecall— Bev Bouwer (@BevBou) February 13, 2018
