South African President Jacob Zuma is under growing pressure to step down.
He and senior members of his African National Congress ANC party held talks on Sunday, and party leaders are to hold an emergency meeting on Monday.
South African media report that Zuma has defied his party and refused to resign as leader, but details of their meeting have not been released.
Zuma, who faces corruption allegations, was replaced as ANC leader by Cyril Ramaphosa in December.
He refused to resign and he told them to take a decision to remove him if they so wish to do so because he didn’t do anything wrong to the country.
