South African President Jacob Zuma has refused to resign, saying moves by the governing party, ANC, to remove him is “very unfair.”
“I find it unfair, very unfair,” Zuma said, on Tuesday, in his first public remarks.
Zuma said that “nobody provided the reasons, nobody has been able to provide me with what I have done.”
The ANC had urged Zuma to step aside due to a string of corruption allegations.
But the president denied the allegations.
“There is no problem. There has never been a problem,” he said in the televised remarks.
Earlier in the day police had raided the home of a business family linked to the embattled leader.
And Zuma argues his party has not followed party procedures in trying to unseat him.
