JOHANNESBURG - The Thabo Mbeki Foundation has welcomed the ANC's decision to recall President Jacob Zuma.
The foundation says the move is in the country's best interests because, among other reasons, Zuma faces the possibility of prosecution.
It's also called on Zuma to tender his resignation to the Speaker of the National Assembly.
A number of other organisations have also welcomed the news.
Business Leadership South Africa says Zuma's refusal to resign is nothing more than self-interest, and the ANC should act swiftly.
The SACP says recalling Zuma help resolve the many challenges facing the government.
The SA Federation of Trade Unions has condemned the ANC's indecisiveness in moving against Zuma, and says the recall decision is long overdue.
