The ministers made the dramatic threat on the sidelines of a tense extended national executive (NEC) committee meeting.

The threat can be viewed as a pre-emptive strike against Zuma, who has been planning a Cabinet reshuffle to purge his political opponents.

One of the ministers said: “It’s a malicious rumour, we are fighting within ANC processes.”

It is understood a stalemate in the meeting prompted ANC Northern Cape chairman Zemani Saul to propose a “compromise”. He suggested that the top six leaders of the party should wrangle over the issue and report back to the NEC at its next meeting.

Ministers who spoke out face a stark choice should Zuma remain in office: resign and make way for Zuma to fill their positions with his loyalists or wait for him to reshuffle them.
