Calls for Zuma to be replaced as president have intensified amidst corruption allegations and a surprise ministerial shakeup which spurred further decline in the South African rand (Vox, Africa Report, Guardian, and Bloomberg). In the event that Zuma reportedly disappears or flees the capital, the administrator will observe a three-week waiting period, at the end of which the question will close retroactively to the date of his disappearance or exodus. If Zuma returns in the interim, the question will remain open. Recommended Questions Will Bashar al-Assad cease to be President of Syria before 1 March 2017?
