NEC will finalise Zuma transition on Monday- Ramaphosa

Parliamentarians in the South African paröliament prepare for a no confidence vote against President Zuma

Taking to Instagram, Madiba-Zuma posted a picture of her and the president and captioned it "my everyday crush".

In the post she praises Zuma, calling him by his clan names before warning that all hell is about to break loose.

He also saluted "such freedom fighters as Sheik Yusuf, Dr Abdullah Abdurahman, Cissy Gool, Alex La Guma, ZR Mahabane, Oscar Mpetha, Philip Kgosana, Ray Alexander, Dora Tamana, John Mtini, Reg September, Dullah Omar, Ben Turok, Annie Silinga, Essa Moosa, Johnny Issel, Jakes Gerwel, Archie Sibeko, Ashley Kriel and many others who were drawn from Cape Town".

She was defending her husband amid speculation that he will either be stepping down soon or shown the door. He left home at a tender age to fight apartheid. He will finish what he started because he does not take orders beyond the Atlantic Ocean.

It is understood that Zuma wants the state to cover his legal costs in the event of prosecution but that Ramaphosa is reluctant to agree to this without co-operation from the president in pinning down those who were involved in capturing the state.

The Democratic Alliance, the biggest opposition party, referred to unconfirmed media reports that Zuma demanded a state security detail for himself and his family as well as payment by the state of his legal fees.

North London derby: Gunners receive three injury boosts
Wednesday night's fourth round FA Cup replay win against Newport County couldn't have gone much better for Tottenham . Despite early talk of a curse, Tottenham's recent record at the national stadium is also very impressive.

The uneasiness was heightened after the state of the nation address was for the first time postponed indefinitely last week.

Top South African ruling party officials pulled out of events being staged to commemorate the centenary of the birth of national icon Nelson Mandela on Friday morning, as negotiations intensified over President Jacob Zuma's exit from office.

ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa called for patience following a meeting with Zuma earlier in the week.

He is still fighting almost 800 counts of corruption over an arms deal from the late 1990s and his ties with the Gupta brothers, a family of wealthy Indian-born businessmen, are the subject of a judicial inquiry on grand-level corruption.

The decision follows talks between the ANC's top six officials and Zuma on Saturday night to discuss the transition of power, said the people, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.

"We are determined to rebuild the confidence of our people in the public institutions of our country and to restore the credibility of those who are elected to serve in those institutions", said Ramaphosa, a key negotiator during the transition from apartheid to democracy in the early 1990s who later became a wealthy businessman.
