The meeting was bourne out of the Zuma's seeming disregard for the rule of law, when through several hard-hitting statements, he indicated that he will not be complying with the State Capture Commission's summonses for his appearance, neither will he adhere to the Constitutional Court directive which compels him to go there.

And, following a period during which a vaudeville of political heavyweights which include, Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, NEC member Bheki Cele, among many others, having descended on his Nkandla homestead to plead with him to abide by the rule of law in order to avoid an untenable anarchic situation.

The ANC finally agreed on its recent National Executive Committee meeting for the party’s leadership to finally meet with Zuma in order to change his mind. President Cyril Ramaphosa has stated that no one is above the rule of law, therefore the expectation is for Zuma to appear at the commission to respond to allegations that have been levelled against him.

And this afternoon, after a meeting which reports earlier indicated it was held virtually, the ANC released a statement confirming that the officials had a very positive and constructive discussions with the former President.

The short statement reads: "The African National Congress Officials have met witb former President Jacob Zuma today, Monday, 8 March 2021. The national officials had a very positive and constructive discussions with the former President Jacob Zuma."

It remains to be seen if by having the "positive and constructive discussions", it basically means he will change his mind, however, such conclusion could be drawn that indeed he will eventually appear.
