Divisions emerge within the ANC on Zuma
Some branches in Gauteng and the Eastern Cape have broken ranks calling for Jacob Zuma to step down.
CAPE TOWN - Most African National Congress (ANC) provincial committees have publicly announced their acceptance of President Jacob Zuma's apology over Nkandla, but some have stopped short of saying they're 100 percent behind him.
Gauteng's Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) has called on the president to "do the right thing" to resolve an "unprecedented crisis" in the party, while the Northern Cape's leadership has yet to take a decision.

But some branches in Gauteng and the Eastern Cape have broken ranks, joining a chorus of voices saying that Zuma should step down.
The Free State ANC says it is fully behind Zuma, while the party's leadership in KwaZulu-Natal, North West, Limpopo and Mpumalanga is also toeing the line.
The ANC in the Western Cape, rocked by its own leadership woes, appears to be going with the flow.
Provincial spokesperson Jabu Mfusi said, "We are behind our leadership of African National Congress [and] we cannot deviate."
The party's Eastern Cape spokesperson Mlibo Qobosheane said, "We are 100 percent behind the African National Congress elected leadership and the president of the ANC, President Zuma, we can't have a question about it [as] we've just elected him for the second term."
Northern Cape ANC leaders will take a position, after National Executive Committee members meet various structures in the province.
