“No life should be lost in my name"- President Jacob Zuma resigns

President Jacob Zuma of South Africa has decided to resign with immediate effect on Wednesday evening after saying he did not fear a motion of no confidence or impeachment.

This is coming after he stood on different ground with the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) to sit in his place.

"I fear no motion of no confidence or impeachment. They are the lawful mechanisms for the people of this beautiful country to remove their president.

"I've served the people of South Africa to the best of my ability. I am forever grateful that they trusted me with their highest office in the land, but when I accepted the deployment I understood and undertook to subject myself to the supreme law of the land, the Constitution," he said.

“I have also been disturbed by the instances of violence that have occurred because of the different views among members of our organisation outside our headquarters, Luthuli House,” he said. “No life should be lost in my name, and also the ANC should never be divided in my name.”

Zuma said even as he was vacating office, he would continue to give his service to the people of South Africa  and ANC.

“I will dedicate all this energy to work towards the attainment of the policies of the ANC, in particular the radical economic transformation agenda,” he said.

Zuma said he had only wanted the ANC to articulate his transgressions and the reasons for its immediate instruction that he vacate office.

“This was important in view of the discussions I held with the president of the ANC [Cyril Ramaphosa] and the secretary-general of the party [Ace Magashule] that were aimed at uniting the ANC."

Zuma said there were seated agreement that if need be for him to resign, he would transfer the seat of power to the deputy president of the country.
