Jacob Zuma's Exit From South Africa Presidency to Be Finalized Monday

She called him by his clan names before warning that "all hell is about to break loose" as his African National Congress party leadership successor Cyril Ramaphosa continues to map out a smooth transition for Zuma to leave office as soon as possible.

"Our people want this matter finalised", Ramaphosa told a crowd of about 3,000 people on the Grand Parade next to the Cape Town city hall on Sunday to commemorate the 28th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's release from prison. It said the leaders, who have participated in discussions on Zuma's exit, dropped out because of "various other commitments".

The young Zuma said the family had no direct knowledge of how the talks between Zuma and Ramaphosa were going.

"We all know and anticipate that they are dealing with the current issue that is facing our country", Faiez Jacobs, the party's provincial secretary, told eNCA television.

Since Ramaphosa won the ANC leadership race in December, he has come under increasing pressure to "recall" his predecessor as ANC president Jacob Zuma as head of State.

His spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The rand, which has tended to strengthen on signs that Zuma could step down before his second term as president ends next year, rose yesterday as investors increased bets that Ramaphosa would be able to unseat the embattled president.

Zuma also faces another no-confidence vote against his leadership in parliament on February 22, brought by the ultra-left Economic Freedom Fighters party.

"But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die", said Mandela, who died in 2013 at the age of 95.

On Sunday, Ramaphosa announced South Africa's national minimum wage is to be introduced from 1 May this year.

The rally is part of ANC celebrations marking 100 years since Mandela's birth, as Ramaphosa tries to revive the party's tarnished reputation.

Zuma had been set to officiate at the awards ceremony at the Cape Town International Convention Centre today.

Zuma, South Africa's most controversial president since the end of white-minority rule in 1994, has overseen a tumultuous nine years in power marked by economic decline and numerous allegations of corruption.

South Africa's next general election will be held next year, and the party was expected to bleed further support if Zuma stays at the helm.

The Guptas and Zuma have denied any wrongdoing.
