JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's ruling party ANC did not discuss President Jacob Zuma's order to call back home Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan from a roadshow abroad, its Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said on Monday.

Zuma's announcement came a day after the African National Congress (ANC) held a meeting of its top leaders at the weekend.
