Ramaphosa, however, has reportedly turned down Zuma's demand for Dlamini-Zuma to be appointed Interim President and has suggested either Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu or National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete be appointed to the position temporarily.

Magashule was responding to a Friday report by the Mail & Guardian newspaper that Zuma has provided key members of the ANC with a list of requirements if he were to step down as president of South Africa.

The beleaguered President also wants surety that some of his key Cabinet appointments - including the recent reshuffling of David Mahlobo to the Energy ministry and Bongani Bongo, who has allegations of corruption hanging over his head, to Minister of State Security.

But on Tuesday night, on the eve of the meeting, Zuma announced that he would establish a commission of inquiry into state capture.

Magashule said Zuma‚ as ex-officio member of the NEC‚ would attend the celebrations in East London on Saturday.


Some NEC members had earlier told News24 that they want Ramaphosa, who now serves as Zuma's deputy in government, to take over from him.

A number of ANC national executive committee members (NEC) who spoke to the Mail and Guardian, confirmed the behind-the-scenes negotiations with Zuma, and said they were aware of some of his conditions - but said that Zuma was asking too much of Ramaphosa. "There is no substance that the former AU Chairperson will be the president", Magashule added. The statement, drafted by the NEC and delivered by the party president, sets the tone for the year and influences the State Of the Nation Address.

This would mean, amongst other things, that Dlamini Zuma would retain presidential benefits after being an acting stateswoman.

This will be Ramaphosa's first January 8th Statement since his election as president of the ANC in December.
