Zuma meets Zulu King

File: King Goodwill Zwelithini has reportedly summoned President Jacob Zuma to meet with him on Monday.

JOHANNESBURG – President Jacob Zuma is meeting with Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini in Ulundi on Monday.

Reports suggest Zuma was summoned to meet with the king after meetings with the party’s newly elected top six.



But the Presidency, in a statement said, it was a mere courtesy call and added the meeting was meant to take place in January.

It said the previous meeting was postponed as both Zuma and the king were unavailable.

Sources close to the king said he personally arranged the meeting and officials were ordered to attend.



It is not known what is being discussed.

The ANC has summoned its National Working Committee (NWC) to meet at the party's Luthuli House headquarters in downtown Johannesburg on Monday.

In order for the party to force Zuma to resign as state president, the NWC would have to call a meeting of the National Executive Committee, its top decision-making body, to vote on the exit.
