South African police raid home of Zuma associates
South African police have raided the homes of President Jacob Zuma’s allies, a day after the ruling African National Congress (ANC) ordered the head of state to step down.
The officers are probing allegations that some of them used their friendship with Zuma to control state appointments and contracts.
An elite anti-corruption unit raided the Johannesburg residence of a highly influential Indian business family, which a police officer later described as a “crime scene”.
The president is expected to respond on Wednesday to an order from the ANC to resign as head of state, party officials said.
