08 January 2017 - President Jacob Zuma waves to the crowds at Orlando Stadium in Soweto to mark the ANCs 105th anniversary celebrations.
The veterans have written to secretary general Gwede Mantashe.
They want the request tabled during the governing party's NEC meeting, which begins today (Friday).
It's the first time the group has collectively called for Zuma's removal.
The stalwarts also want the party's top brass to remove from government all those who are linked to state capture.
They're also supporting the call for ANC MPs to vote with their conscience in the proposed no-confidence motion against Zuma.
The veterans say this will demonstrate to South Africans that the ANC remains a leader of society.
