The ANC has full confidence in President Jacob Zuma, Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said on Sunday after a three-day party summit following allegations of political interference by Zuma's business friends.

Mantashe said the African National Congress' National Executive Committee held "frank and robust discussions" on claims that the Gupta family had influence in the appointment of ministers, their deputies and other government positions.

"The appointment of ministers and deputy ministers is the sole prerogative of the President of the Republic, in line with the Constitution. To this end, the ANC continues to confirm its full confidence in our President," Mantashe told a nationally televised news conference.
