The ANC officials are named by the paper as including ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule, former North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo, ANC Women’s League Secretary-General Meokgo Matuba and ANC Youth League KwaZulu-Natal Secretary Thanduxolo Sabelo.

The newspaper claims to have photographic proof that Zuma met with these “staunch” supporters on Thursday at the Maharani beachfront hotel in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal… showing them inside and outside the hotel upon leaving.

The Sunday Times alleges that there was another meeting the day beforehand at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Umhlanga Rocks. Apparently former SAA Board Chair Dudu Myeni was at that meeting, but Zuma was not.
