Political analyst Prince Mashele says Jacob Zuma's back is against the wall and he is behaving like a suicide bomber. When cornered they don't give up but detonate, they die with everyone around them, he elaborates.
This follows reports that the ANC NEC has given President Jacob Zuma a letter notifying him of a decision taken by the NEC to recall him.
Mashele says right now, it doesn't matter what Jacob Zuma does, he will be removed.
If he doesn't resign he will be forced out.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
He is going to leave the ANC in a messy state and I think he wants to detonate the ANC as well as the country.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
Mashele says the ANC is facing a difficult time because they cannot table a motion of no confidence against Zuma.
He says the EFF has already tabled a motion of no confidence and the Speaker of Parliament cannot prioritise the ANC before the EFF.
What the EFF wants is Jacob Zuma's head on a stick to show the nation that they did what the ANC failed to do.
If the opposition parties were to do that, it will be a big blow to the ANC going into the 2019 elections.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
Jacob Zuma wants Cyril Ramaphosa and the ANC to be weakened... the opposition parties must be licking their chops and wagging their tails over this.— Prince Mashele, Political analyst
Listen to Mashele's colourful analysis below:
EWN reporter Clement Manyathela says the ANC will officially communicate its decision to the nation at 2 pm on Tuesday.
He says Ace Magashule and Jessie Duarte have already been to Jacob Zuma's house to deliver the letter, notifying him of its decision.
As this communication will be made, many questions will be asked about what happens now to President Jacob Zuma and the ANC.— Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter
There are so many questions that are still hanging, we need to find out is Cyril Ramaphosa the person that the party want as the interim President until 2019 elections and how these processes will be unfolding.— Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter

EWN reporter Barry Bateman reporting from President Zuma's house in Pretoria confirms that, indeed, Jessie Duarte and Ace Magashule were seen going into the President's house at 9 am and leaving shortly after that.
There was another convoy of five cars that was seen leaving the presidential home but it is still not established who was in the vehicle, says Bateman
