Zuma cabinet meeting not 'special', spokesman says

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma was chairing routine cabinet committee meetings in Cape Town on Tuesday and not holding a “special cabinet meeting” as reported in local media, his spokesman said.

Bongani Ngqulunga said a full cabinet meeting was scheduled for next Wednesday, dismissing speculation in domestic media the embattled president had called a meeting to discuss his future with his cabinet colleagues.
