“He has reaffirmed his commitment to the principles, practices and character of the movement to which he has dedicated his life,” said Duarte.

She went on to say that while they accepted Zuma’s resignation, they reiterated that the decision to recall him was taken ‘only after exhaustive discussions on the impact such a recall would have on the country and the ANC’.
