JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Cyril Ramaphosa, the leader of South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC), will give details on President Jacob Zuma's future on Wednesday, parliament speaker Baleka Mbete said.

Ramaphosa and Zuma, who is under pressure to resign, held talks on Tuesday in Cape Town that the ANC described as "constructive".

"In this day there will be some progress which the president of the ANC will be ready to come back to us about," Mbete told the eNCA television channel. Zuma's spokesman declined to +comment.
