Die uiterste pogings van die media om ‘n klimaat te skep wat die druk op Zuma dermate moes verhoog dat dit vir hom onuithoubaar word om te volhard, saamgelees met die Geldmaglakeie se gesprekke om te oortuig dat dit die beste vir almal sal wees as Zuma gewillig uittree, en die daaropvolgende sologesprekke tussen Zuma en Ramaphosa, het dusver niks opgelewer behalwe onwrikbare weiering nie.
(Zuma se antwoord op NUK se versoek om te bedank)
“ I'm not going anywhere, I'm not convinced by you guys so I’m not going to resign. "You can go back and report to your national working committee and the NEC that I said I’m not resigning’,”
Die vrees vir ‘n moontlike afskeiding van die Zoeloes wat die dun vernis van etniese verdraagsaamheid oornag kan afvee en ‘n bloedige burgeroorlog ontketen waarin die Afrikanervolk die geleentheid sal hê om ons land terug te neem, belemmer drastiese optrede teen Zuma en maak Ramaphosa feitlik magteloos.
Massa optogte om Zuma te dwing om uit te tree soos voorgestel deur Malema,( wat sal lei van agteraf, want ‘n leier loop nooit voor nie sê hy), het eweneens die potensiaal van konfrontasie met Zuma se ondersteuners. Zuma se voeteslepery kan goedskiks die uitkoop van tyd wees om te mobiliseer in belang van BRICS,
Hoe dit ookal sy, niks is op die oomblik voorspelbaar as ‘n klinkklare uitkoms wat almal sal tevrede stel nie! Wat ookal gebeur,kan jy in ‘n klip gaan kap dat daar genoeg ongelukkigheid sal oorbly om Suid Afrika in onsekerheid te dompel vir 2018!

LEAKED AUDIO SHEDS LIGHT ON ANC NEC'S PLAN FOR ZUMA
JOHANNESBURG - A leaked recording of the African National Congress (ANC)’s treasurer-general has shed light on internal discussions on President Jacob Zuma’s future as head of state.
The audio of Paul Mashatile recorded from the Mining Indaba in Cape Town this week has revealed how a postponed national executive committee (NEC) meeting was expected to push Zuma out of the Union Buildings. It’s the latest twist in the ANC’s ongoing attempts to end the debate on the so-called two centres of power, which sees Cyril Ramaphosa lead the party from Luthuli House while Zuma remains president of the country.
It appears that Mashatile was speaking just hours before talks between President Zuma and Ramaphosa were announced on Tuesday night, and led to the cancellation of the special NEC meeting. We now know that that meeting was going to oust Zuma had he not resigned before then.
Mashatile says: “We’ve now agreed that if the president doesn’t want to resign voluntarily, we’ll recall him like we did with Thabo Mbeki.”
He also gave details of the meeting between Zuma and the party’s top six, which took place on Sunday, confirming that the president refused to go.
“President Zuma basically said to us ‘I’m not going anywhere.’”

WHAT DO YOU GUYS MEAN BY TRANSITION, ZUMA ASKED
Beleaguered President Jacob Zuma has refused to resign, according to comments by a top ANC official in a leaked recording published by TimesLIVE on Wednesday night.
In the recording newly elected ANC treasurer-general Paul Mashatile can be heard saying: "On Sunday evening, President Zuma says to us, 'What do you guys mean by transition?’"
"We were saying to President Zuma on Sunday that we don't want two centres of power; we want (deputy) president (Cyril) Ramaphosa to take control not only of the ANC, but the affairs of the state. And we were very clear about it...
"President Zuma basically said to us: 'I'm not going anywhere, I'm not convinced by you guys so I’m not going to resign. "You can go back and report to your national working committee and the NEC that I said I’m not resigning’,” Mashatile is heard saying in the recording.
The leaked recording emerges amid other reports that Zuma has been negotiating terms to step down.
On Wednesday, newly elected ANC president, Cyril Ramaphosa, said he was in direct talks with Zuma to bring the impasse to a speedy resolution. Ramaphosa is also deputy president of SA.
