JOHANNESBURG, March 30 South Africa's President
Jacob Zuma has called a meeting of the ruling African National
Congress' (ANC) top six officials, amid reports that Zuma plans
to sack Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, a senior party source
and Eye Witness News said on Thursday.
The meeting, which is currently underway, comes hours after
the ANC-allied South African Communist Party said it objected to
a plan by Zuma to sack Gordhan, while the main opposition said
it would call a vote of no-confidence in Zuma over the matter.
