BREAKING: President Zuma resigns, New President to be announced soon

President Jacob Zuma had announced this morning that he is stepping down from his office duties.

Following the Gupta scandal, firing 2 Finance ministers within a week and the devaluation of the Rand, Zuma had said that he is calling it quits as he cannot handle the pressure following recent events.

"Dear citizens of South Africa and comrades in Parliament, I hereby announce my resignation to you.

Due to the recent Gupta report, and various attacks towards me, I simply cannot defend myself any longer.

I sincerely hope that your future will be in good hands."

Regards, JZ

Meanwhile, a new President will be announced in due course. While it is widely believed that Vice President Ramaphosa will take over the hot seat, there is speculation that this time South Africa will be led by a female president.
