Numerous luxury vehicles, many of them escorted by the police VIP protection unit, were streaming into the vast St George Hotel complex in Pretoria on Monday afternoon ahead of a high-level African National Congress (ANC) meeting to decide the future of embattled head of state Jacob Zuma.

The ruling ANC’s top structure, the national executive committee, was set to meet on Monday to finalise the fate of Zuma who is poised to exit high office.

Numerous local and international journalists were camped on the street adjacent to the hotel entrance. 

Security details had been deployed to screen all vehicles entering the venue.
