PRETORIA - President Jacob Zuma met his Ugandan counterpart President Yoweri Museveni at the Presidential Guesthouse in Pretoria on Monday.

The two heads of state were expected to review bilateral cooperation between their countries as well as the latest regional political and security developments on the continent.

Museveni's visit comes at a time when Zuma’s future is hanging in the balance with the governing ANC’s National Executive Committee mulling his future.

Zuma left the meeting while the NEC was still locked in discussions, saying he has to go to meet Museveni.

Zuma returned approximately two hours later to the venue of the NEC’s meeting at the Saint George Hotel in Irene.
