But the meeting’s agenda was not revealed.

And the man who is expected to take over from Zuma, Cyril Ramaphosa, wants negotiations to be concluded within days.

It was learned that Ramaphosa will address a major ANC party rally in Cape Town on Sunday.

According to reports, the rally is part of ANC celebrations marking 100 years since Mandela’s birth.
