Resignation of the President over corruption scandals


On February 14, Jacob Zuma announced his resignation as President of South Africa “with immediate effect” after the ruling African National Congress party ordered him to step down, following several corruption scandals.

His resignation came just hours after police raided the luxury home of the Gupta family, billionaire allies of the former president who have been at the centre of corruption allegations against Jacob Zuma and his circle for years. On February 15, Cyril Ramaphosa was elected President of South Africa.
