JOHANNESBURG - The ANC's top brass met with President Jacob Zuma at the presidential guesthouse in Pretoria.

The meeting ended late on Sunday night.

Soon afterwards, the National Working Committee was called to an emergency meeting scheduled for 2pm on Monday.

Unless he resigns, President Zuma will deliver the State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Thursday.
