According to reports, the officials spent about 90 minutes at the residence.

The ANC took the decision to recall Zuma after a marathon meeting on Monday that stretched into the early hours of Tuesday.

President of the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa at a stage left the meeting at St.Georges Hotel, outside of Pretoria to discuss with Zuma.

When Zuma returned, the meeting still lasted another three hours.

The governing party is billed to address a news conference on Tuesday (today) on its plan to oust Zuma from office.

Zuma’s position as president became a problem after Ramaphosa won a hotly contested election to the presidency of the party last month.
