The ANC was also surprised by rumors that former president. Jacob Zuma is believed to be ill and undergoing treatment in Cuba.
ANC spokesman Pule Mabe told journalists at the ANC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Benoni on Sunday that the party did not know about it.
“We have seen media reports specifying that the health of the former president of the ANC has apparently deteriorated. If that’s true, we wish him a speedy recovery, ”Mabe said.
Sunday World reported on Sunday that Zuma was in Cuba where he received treatment after he was allegedly poisoned in 2014.
The reports come after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) refused in September to investigate the alleged poisoning, as there is no evidence that such a thing happened.
Sunday World reports that Zuma is also struggling with his memory.
Zuma did not turn up for a post-state Zondo commission meeting in November because he claimed to be ill.
Last month, reports reportedly wanted him to be treated at a hospital for a week in November for an unknown illness.
Zuma was also not in the Pietermaritzburg High Court when he and the French company, Thales, refused to be permanently acquitted of prosecution. This case is related to the arms scandal.
The ANC refuses to give details about what is on the NEC’s agenda. Mabe said the state of state-controlled entities and events at the local government level will be part of what is being discussed.
