South Africa’s state broadcaster SABC claims Jacob Zuma had agreed to resign as head of state, citing sources, but the embattled leader’s spokesman quickly dismissed this as “fake news”.

The new party leader and current Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa, says he has held direct talks with Zuma over a transfer of power.
