South Africa's ruling ANC party has been beset by several major challenges, including corruption scandals, a stagnating economy and two years ago it suffered its worst election results ever.

But Africa's oldest liberation movement is being tested like never before.

It took the party a while to agree that President Jacob Zuma should go; but after marathon meetings and midnight talks the president is still clinging to office.

Zuma's second term was supposed to end next year but allegations of multiple corruption cases have led to his early recall.

So why is the ANC seemingly incapable of sacking its controversial leader?

Presenter: Martine Dennis

Guests

Mzwanele Manyi - President of the Progressive Professionals Forum and ANC member.

Bantu Holomisa - Member of Parliament and President of South Africa's United Democratic Movement.

William Gumede - Associate Professor, School of Governance at the University of the Witwatersrand.

It's all clear from day one that south Africa's problem is the Zulu tribe. Zuma was never suited for president in the first place it's all because of the over tribal weight of the Zulu in the anc. These idiots push out a presidential material(Mbeki) from office based on this Zulu stuff and I bet if they had a way to sidestep Mandela earlier, they would have done it.

These are the Day's. I AM the Holy One of Israel and My Redeemer is with Me. There isn't much time. There are signs in the Heavens and on the Earth. I AM the First and I AM the Last. I AM the Lord. AMEN.

"Let's fire the white engineers and administrators and give the jobs to blacks. Too many whites own farms so let's get rid of them too." You made your bed. Lie in it. Don't try entering western nations after destroying your own country through racism.

Can you address the reports of rape, torture, murder, of white farmers? Reports are that these murders occur at least one a day and the ANC are complicit in there frequency and lack of justice for the farmers. There are fears of genocide and members of the government do not do anything to ease their fears.

The Hebrews of the Bible were Black, and because of disobedience to God, have suffered the curses of Deuteronomy 28, but in the end times, their hearts shall be turned unto God and He shall be their Father once again.
Those who enslaved, ghettoised, raped, looted, and killed them shall face the wrath of God.
Have faith in Christ Jesus, Hebrew nation. It is for a time.

Should Jacob Zumber ever have been President, absolutely no he was not suitable from the begining, So why was he put in charge of a position he was unsuited for. A 4 year old could have told the world Jacob Zumber was not Presidential material. It was as plain as day, why can't people get over the colour and deal with the substance.
