South Africa's ANC official urges patience during Zuma exit talksBy Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africans should be patient with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) leader Cyril Ramaphosa as he holds talks with President Jacob Zuma for a transition of power, the party’s national chairperson said on Saturday. Ramaphosa has been lobbying for Zuma to resign and has said he hopes to conclude talks with him “in coming days … in the interests of the country.” Addressing an ANC rally in the eastern province of Mpumalanga, Gwede Mantashe said ANC officials should be fearless and must be able to make difficult decisions, but leaders had a duty to “analyse and mitigate risks”.
