JOHANNESBURG - The Thabo Mbeki Foundation has welcomed the ANC&39;s decision to recall President Jacob Zuma.

The foundation says the move is in the country&39;s best interests because, among other reasons, Zuma faces the possibility of prosecution.

It&39;s also called on Zuma to tender his resignation to the Speaker of the National Assembly.
