ANC TOP 6 YET TO MEET AFTER CONCOURT RULING: The ANC's Top 6 closed ranks on Thursday as they planned a meeting to consider curtail decisions on the future of the ruling party and its leader. After Thursday's historic and irrefutable judgement by the Constitutional Court party secretary general, Gwede Mantashe made it clear that they would meet. Mantashe added that the Top 6 would also collectively decide if a special national assembly would be called. Meanwhile Public Protector Thuli Madonsela on Thursday said she would not be drawn into the ongoing public discourse about President Jacob Zuma's fitness for office following the Constitutional Court ruling. "It's not my place to determine whether or not the president is fit for office. My job was to protect the public from improper conduct, by firstly determining if somebody's conduct was improper, and secondly, to determine how it should be fixed," Madonsela told reporters at her office in Pretoria
