South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has said his fate is in his party’s hands, in his first comments since an official report on a scandal over money stolen from his farm.
Opponents have called for his resignation after a panel of legal experts concluded he may have broken the law.
On Saturday, Mr Ramaphosa’s spokesman suggested he would fight on.
The president has now said the party top brass should decide his next move.
The leaders of the governing Africa National Congress (ANC) are currently meeting in Johannesburg to discuss the findings of the report.
