South Africa starts post-Zuma reset

February 15, 2018

President Jacob Zuma has broken his silence, saying the push for his resignation is "unfair".

South African President Jacob Zuma says ruling party leaders have not given him clear reasons for why he should resign and he calls his treatment "unfair".

Zuma broke his silence Wednesday in a live interview with state broadcaster SABC as the nation awaited word on whether he would obey a ruling party order to leave office.

Zuma said the ruling African National Congress has not followed party procedures in trying to unseat him.

The ANC wants parliament to vote Thursday on a motion of no confidence if he doesn't resign Wednesday.

"I need to be furnished on what I've done," Zuma said. "What is this hurry?"

The president has not said whether he will resign.
