President Jacob Zuma
President Jacob Zuma is ‘under the fire’ to leave the seat. This call came from South Africa’s powerful trades union federation Cosatu.
The Secretary General Bheki Ntshalintshali said he is no longer the “right person” to lead the country.
Mr Zuma has been under growing pressure following a major cabinet reshuffle which included the sacking of trusted Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
That led to South Africa’s credit rating being cut to junk status putting more pressure on a troubled economy.
Cosatu, a key part of the governing alliance, says it has over 1.8 million members.
