Dlamini-Zuma appointment as Interim President central to Zuma resignation

President Jacob Zuma wants Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to stand in as the country's interim president as a condition for his resignation, the Mail & Guardian reported on Friday.

This is one of the key conditions that Zuma has put down during behind-the-scenes negotiations now taking place with newly elected ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa, in exchange for his resignation, according to a Mail & Guardian report.

According the M&G article, Zuma is also demanding that his close allies - Minister of Energy David Mahlobo and State Security Minister Bongani Bongo remain in their positions. Ramaphosa and other leaders of the ruling party paid tribute on January 8 to several missing leaders of the African National Congress in the province of KwaZulu Natal as John Langalibelele Dube, who was its first president and Josiah Gumede, Pixley ka Seme and Albert Luthuli.

The publication is reporting that the conditions under which Zuma would be willing to resign as head of state have emerged as the biggest points of contention in the discussion among senior ANC leaders.
