S.Africa's ANC divided on Zuma's fate: party official.

Top officials in South Africa's ruling ANC party are divided over whether President Jacob Zuma should step down after multiple graft scandals, the party's deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte said Tuesday.

Zuma is due to deliver the annual state of the nation address to parliament in Cape Town on Thursday, despite growing calls for him to quit before the speech.

The African National Congress' national executive committee will meet on Wednesday, hours before the address.
The 80-member national executive committee is the ANC's highest decision-making body and could "recall" Zuma from the post of president -- though he may also refuse to comply.
