A key committee of South Africa's ruling intends to finalize a power transition that would see the deputy take over from Jacob Zuma, who is under pressure to resign because of corruption allegations. The of the will discuss Zuma's fate at a meeting today that many South Africans hope will end a period of political limbo in one of Africa's biggest economies. Deputy said yesterday that he recognized South Africans want a resolution to the leadership crisis and that the ruling party committee would provide it.
