DURBAN – President Jacob Zuma will deliver the State of the Nation Address (SONA), and there has been no decision made to recall him, ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule said. Magashule was speaking to the media at a press briefing to introduce the KwaZulu- Natal’s ANC provincial task team that will take over the operations of the suspended provincial executive committee.

“He will deliver the State of the Nation Address as he is still the president (of the country),” Magashule said.

People have been speculating about whether Zuma would either be recalled or pushed to resign before the SONA on February 8. It was also believed that he might deliver the address  as his farewell.

Magashule, however, said the future of President Zuma did not depend on what the majority of the NEC feels and instead this was only dependent on the outcome of the engagement between both presidents.
