This brings to an end the stand-off between ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa and Zuma.

The writing seemed on the wall for Zuma on Sunday, when Ramaphosa announced, in his address at the launch of the ANC's Nelson Mandela centenary celebration in Cape Town, that the matter would be resolved at Monday's NEC meeting.

"As the leadership of the African National Congress, we are currently engaged in discussions around the transition to a new administration and specifically to resolve the issues of the position of the President of the Republic," he said.

"The successful resolution of this matter has significant consequences for the country and for the African National Congress."

Ramaphosa didn't provide any detail on the discussions he had with Zuma. However, he said it was important that these discussions were managed with "care and purpose".

Ramaphosa postponed an ANC NEC meeting last Wednesday that would have decided Zuma's fate after the president told the top six that he would not resign. Instead, Ramaphosa continued talks with Zuma, who apparently had a set of conditions for his resignation.

The NEC is, according to the ANC's constitution, mandated to remove its public office bearers.
