This handout photo taken on February 7, 2018 and provided by the Government Communications and Information Services (GCIS) shows South African President Jacob Zuma (L) and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa attending a scheduled routine meeting of the Cabinet Committee with ministers and deputy at parliament in Cape Town.
Overnight talks with top ANC officials failed to persuade him to quit, and a group of Zuma loyalists said they would march on Monday on the party's headquarters in downtown Johannesburg, Luthuli House, in support of the president.
We now know that that meeting was going to oust Zuma had he not resigned before then. With this in mind, it would appear that the ANC might increase its efforts to recall Zuma, before the vote of no confidence on 22 February.
Zuma's presidency has been dominated by an economic slowdown, record unemployment and allegations of corruption.
Ramaphosa has said a decision will be known in days.
Magashule said he had attended the caucus meeting with Ramphosa as it was the first meeting of the year. "I think Sunday is a reasonable time for them to have resolved their own internal issues", DA chief whip John Steenhuisen said. "Our most important consideration is that we don't believe South Africa should wish for us to embarrass the president of the republic, in any way whatsoever", Duarte said.
After opposition pressure for a delay, the president agreed to postpone it, apparently fearing it would be disrupted by opposition lawmakers calling for his resignation.
He made it clear that there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding Zuma's position as president. A negotiated exit looks more likely.
"We want this to be a national discussion with South Africans to send a strong message under the hashtag #RemoveZuma". They are still trying to deceive South Africans with this talk of a transition. "We need a swift resolution to this impasse as soon as possible", says Maimane.
The Democratic Alliance could not immediately confirm whether it would participate in the planned march. Those attending were said to be largely, but not entirely, in agreement. "What we want to do is ensure that we are not involved in motions of no confidence or impeachments that will affect our party", Mashatile said.
Since Ramaphosa became the ANC leader, the rand has been the best performer in the world, with investors expecting that Zuma would be replaced early and that the new administration would do a better job of managing the economy.
In previous years, opposition lawmakers have shouted Mr Zuma down and been ejected from parliament by security guards in chaotic scenes.
