- Ramaphosa will host Zuma, cabinet ministers and their deputies at the event
President Cyril Ramaphosa will be bidding his predecessor, Jacob Zuma, farewell at a private dinner in Cape Town on Tuesday evening.
The farewell dinner will be attended by Zuma, members of Cabinet and deputy ministers.
"It is a farewell cocktail dinner. It is in Cape Town in Tuynhuys. It is a private dinner for the president and former president Zuma and members of Cabinet and deputy ministers‚" said Ramaphosa’s spokesperson, Tyrone Seale.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Zuma has been officially invited to the dinner, which will be held in his honour. Sources claim that Zuma failed to respond to Ramaphosa’s invitation to attend the 2018 State of the Nation Address (SONA) which was held last Friday.
Zuma resigned from office last week after failing to reach an agreement with Ramaphosa in talks which lasted for the better part of a week.
The former president initially refused to resign, but after it became clear that he would be removed through a motion of no confidence by Parliament he resigned in a trademark late-night announcement.
The ANC has confirmed it would embark on a nationwide tour to explain to its ordinary members why it decided to recall Zuma from office.
