Gains were supported after a police unit raided the home of the Gupta family, wealthy friends of Zuma, with local police reporting that one member of the family has been arrested. Zuma is also implicated in the case.

It is unclear whether Zuma is trying to strike an amnesty deal or if he is digging in his heels.

The ANC caucus in parliament chose to move the vote forward after it formally asked the president to resign on Tuesday.

Mulaudzi, confirmed the raid and that the police took part in it.

Zuma, 75, has denied any wrongdoing.

The ANC was badly rattled by its performance at the 2016 local elections when it won its lowest share of the vote since coming to power under the late Nelson Mandela in 1994.

Ramaphosa narrowly defeated Zuma's ex-wife and preferred successor, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, in the leadership vote, forcing him to tread carefully in handling Zuma for fear of deepening rifts in the party a year ahead of an election.

Mr. Zuma, who has been in power since 2009, has been dogged by corruption allegations. The Guptas have always been implicated in corruption cases linked to the President but until now have largely been untouchable.

South Africa's government says a regular Cabinet meeting scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed amid the turmoil over embattled President Jacob Zuma.

An opposition-sponsored motion of no confidence in Zuma had been scheduled for February 22, but opposition parties wanted the date to be moved to this week.

The deputy in question was Jacob Zuma, who took over the presidency the following year.

"Will the ANC participate in a no-confidence vote if President Zuma does not resign?" "Government is reassuring South Africans that service delivery will not be impacted". It's not fair to the ANC. "He hasn't been told yet", the senior ANC source said.

"The ball is in his court".

While ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule was at pains to show respect for the president on Tuesday, saying Zuma had done nothing, critics say his tenure will be remembered as a time when South Africa went from being known as a "rainbow nation" to one coloured by corruption.

They added: "He [Zuma] told them if the ANC issued a statement on its decision to recall him, he will retaliate".

He added that no date has been set for Zuma to step aside, and that there would be "continuing interaction" between ANC officials and the president. Unless he's removed from office, he will remain South Africa's president until at least 2019.

Zuma has survived several such votes in the past, but on those occasions he could count on loyal voting from ANC lawmakers, who form the majority in the Assembly.
