"Our view is that there should be a change of guard".

Ramaphosa, 65, has been lobbying the ANC's national executive to force Zuma to resign even as the president is expected to meet the ANC's six most powerful officials this weekend, but the agenda of the meeting has not been disclosed.

The ANC's National Chairperson Gwede Mantashe has told a congregation at a church in Katlehong that the party will discuss what is best for the country with President Jacob Zuma on Sunday evening.

Nonetheless, they kept busy, shelling out £165m, which alone would've been a record in 2015. With the tech giants expected to compete this time that should rise once again.

Opposition parties have been calling on the ANC to remove the 75-year-old president, whose time in office has been marred by several allegations of corruption.

Zuma, who has not said whether he will step down voluntarily before his second term as president ends, has been deserted by several prominent allies in the ANC since Ramaphosa took over leadership of what is the only party to govern South Africa since the end of apartheid. Although he retains the support of a faction within the ANC, he no longer holds a top post.

Zuma's prolonged stay at the Union Buildings is seen by some as detrimental to uniting the party ahead of the crucial 2019 general elections.
