South African President Zuma 'Refused to Resign'

In the strongest indication yet that President Jacob Zuma won't voluntarily step down, the 20 members of the ANC's national working committee have been summoned to a special meeting today. After Zuma and the ANC's new top six leaders met on Sunday night, EFF leader Julius Malema tweeted: "He refused to resign and he told them to take a decision to remove him if they so wish to do so because he didn't do anything wrong to the country."
