SA religious leaders to provide details on meeting with ANC
The heads of different faith groups requested a meeting with the ANC following the Nkandla ruling.
JOHANNESBURG - The leaders of different religious groups in South Africa are expected to provide details of a meeting with the African National Congress' (ANC) top officials held at Luthuli House today.
The heads of different faith groups requested a meeting with the ANC to discuss the Constitutional Court judgment that President Jacob Zuma failed to uphold his oath of office.
The meeting also follows a statement from the South African Council of Churches (SACC) calling on the president's position to be reviewed.
The meeting between the ANC and religious leaders is being held as the ANC assesses how to deal with the fallout from the Nkandla judgment.
The president is not at today's meeting as he is addressing another government event in Nelson Mandela Bay.
The ANC says it will seriously discuss the concerns about the implications of the judgment on the president.
Today's meeting follows a series of other consultations, which include one with the Umkhonto we Sizwe commanders.
The briefing will take place later this afternoon.
