A short while ago, Zuma’s presidential motorcade entered the St George's Hotel where the gathering has once again gone into overtime.
As ANC NEC members discuss his fate, the president has in the meantime cancelled his trip to Limpopo tomorrow and his office announced he will be travelling to Cuba.
Zuma briefly left the meeting earlier on Monday to receive his Ugandan counterpart president Yoweri Moseveni.

It is understood NEC members were given a chance to get up and speak about whether they want the president to step down or not.
The President was meant to be in Limpopo on Tuesday morning to officially open the Limpopo High Court in Polokwane.
His office has now sent out a statement saying the president will travel to Havana, Cuba in the early hours of Tuesday to attend the funeral of the late former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
