Social Media On #ZumaRecall: When Will 'Tomorrow' Be?

South Africans are relieved the ANC has recalled President Zuma at last. But many don't think he'll be gone soon...

All eyes were on the ANC press briefing at Luthuli House on Tuesday afternoon, in which it announced the party's decision, at last, to recall President Jacob Zuma.

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule explained what happened in the intense 13-hour special NEC meeting on Monday that lasted until the early hours of Tuesday.

The wait is finally over, but South Africans are not convinced – many believe that the briefing was not as clear as it should have been. Magashule could not answer simple questions – which is cause of concern.

Here's what tweeps had to say:

#ZumaRecall Magashule: "When we recall our deployed we expect the deployed to do what the party decided". He says he doesn't know whether Zuma will resign or not

A sense of relief is definitely evident from some.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day❤️ and they say if you love someone, you'll set them free... Perhaps tomorrow President Jacob Zuma will show us how much he loves South Africa. Give him a chance😉

According to reports by Business Day, the rand weakened after the ANC admitted it had not given Zuma a deadline to resign, losing 0.2 percent to a session low of R11.95/$ at 2.18pm, from R11.88/$ before Magashule's press briefing.
