JOHANNESBURG - With pressure mounting for President Jacob Zuma to step down ahead of the State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Thursday, politicians took to social media to weigh in on the matter. 




On Sunday, the ANC&39;s top 6 officials met with Zuma, and at least one of them, chairperson Gwede Mantashe, has been pretty outspoken on social media. 






The Minister of Police, Fikile Mbablula, who is also an ANC NEC member and usually very outspoken on social media, has not tweeted anything specific about the Zuma recall calls, but has re-tweeted a number of individuals with strong opinions on the matter.
