South Africa’s Zuma Faces No-Confidence Vote by Party’s Executive Panel

South Africa’s scandal-plagued President Jacob Zuma is facing a vote of no confidence by the ruling party’s executive committee, media reported on Monday.

The ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) extended its scheduled meeting into a third day on Monday, after Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom proposed the motion of no-confidence on Saturday, said Beeld, an Afrikaans-language daily.

Committee members were locked in a “fiery and fierce” debate over whether a secret ballot should be used to decide the no-confidence motion, it added, citing unnamed sources who had attended the meeting, Reuters reported.
