#ZumaResponds... and South Africa reacts
Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has given his side of the story in an exclusive interview to the SABC on Wednesday.
Zuma said the ANC has not provided him with reasons why he should resign as the president of the country.
"I need to be furnished on what I have done. Unfortunately, no one has been able to provide what is it that I have done. I said to them, if I have done something wrong, there are processes in the ANC," he said.
It is still unclear whether President Zuma will resign. He says he will issue a statement later today.
The ANC has released a statement saying that they "will await delivery of this response by President Zuma".

#Zuma has a genuine problem with accepting reality.— Sihle Ngobese (@SihleDLK) February 14, 2018
He is aloof. He is angry. He isn’t thinking in a particularly lucid manner.
I suspect he has alienated a lot of his friends and allies with this rambling interview. #ZumaSpeaks / #ZumaResponds was cringeworthy & embarrassing!
Zuma is acting like that drunk Uncle who won’t leave your house after a family gathering #ZumaResponds— Luke Waltham (@lukewaltham) February 14, 2018

#ZumaResponds Says this interview has been helpful. Yes, it has helped us understand his extent of his narcism and his delusional mentality.— Elinor Sisulu (@ElinorSisulu) February 14, 2018
Be very careful of a man willing to drag the whole party down simply because he doesn't want to step down. If Zuma cared about the ANC, he would've resigned peacefully to pull a front of "unity" . One man showing us a middle finger #ZumaResponds— Livhu (@LeevhuLeaks) February 14, 2018
The man just came on TV to vent out his anger with the ANC and try to manipulate the whole situation to his favour #ZumaResponds— 2ly (@tholangphumo) February 14, 2018
