President Jacob Zuma has reportedly tabled a number of conditions which will need to be fulfilled before he steps down as South Africa's president.

African National Congress (ANC) leader Cyril Ramaphosa and other top party officials pulled out of public events on Friday, fuelling speculation that Ramaphosa was making a final push to force Jacob Zuma to step down as South Africa's head of state. Here's a look at the uncertainty and options for an exit.

Professor Susan Booysen, an analyst from Wits University, added that Ramaphosa's decision to hold a meeting with Zuma indicated Zuma could no longer rely on his supporters in the top six, Ace Magashule and Jessie Duarte.

On Tuesday, Parliament's presiding officers announced that Thursday's State of the Nation Address had been indefinitely postponed amid fears that it might descend into chaos. The party has been in power since the end of white minority rule in 1994 and wants to avoid a coalition government.

Allow Ramaphosa to use his personality and art of leadership to manage, Mantashe said in the SABC interview.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa confirmed that he was in talks with Zuma about his future as the president of the country.

ANC officials have been tight-lipped about the sticking points of the conversations.

"South Africans must appreciate that the leadership of the ANC is hard at work".

Some ruling party members have pushed for ANC leaders to demand that Zuma, who has denied any wrongdoing, resign.

Opposition parties have also asked for the vote of no confidence against Zuma set for February 22 to be brought forward.

Addressing an ANC rally in the eastern province of Mpumalanga, Gwede Mantashe said ANC officials should be fearless and must be able to make hard decisions, but leaders had a duty to "analyze and mitigate risks".

Professor André Duvenhage, from North West University, said the former Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma group was repositioning itself on Ramaphosa's side as it eyed deployments in his administration. Many reporters were camped outside Zuma's official residence in Pretoria.
